Post Ielts

Hello,

Is there any rule with DAIC that by the time application is lodged, IELTS should be valid for certain period of time or is it fine submitting IETLS though it expires in another month at the time of lodging the application?

Regards
Jeevan

Hi,

I think the IELTS results are valid for 2 years. If it expires before a decision on the visa is made they might want you to re-sit the test however I'm not 100% on this.

If you feel like making a call to Australia you can on 131 881.
But now I am pretty sure than you only have to do the IELTS once as long as it is valid at the time you apply;
IELTS expires ...Need help - PomsInOz Forum
IELTS...valid two years for all? : British Expat Discussion Forum

I seems once you have given the results and the application has been lodged you're fine after that.

Don't worry, from what I read it seemed that the results are locked-in once you've applied. Your visa wouldn't be refused anyway, if ever the IELTS needs to be re-done they'll just ask you, there's nothing to worry about.

One more doubt... as I am applying for 176 visa and at the time of lodging the application i need to get 100 points...

30 for age, 60 for study and 10 for work (SOL list), so i will meet 100 points, still will I be asked for re-sit of IELTS though I got enough points?

If I am not getting enough points, In mean time I got married and now I am going to add my spouse to my application and for marriage I will get 5 points and for her bachelor degree 5 more points from old system....

but I am not sure if DAIC will consider points for my wife as per new rules....

I said you probably won't have to re-do the IELTS, it's locked in once you apply (unless you want to do it again).

The points test pass mark for this visa is 65 points. If you score less than 65 points, your application will be refused.
Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)

Here is the eligibility your wife has to meet:
Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)

I think if you add your wife now it will be in accordance with the new rules, as you didn't add her before July.
