457 Visa with Academic IELTS

Hi everybody!

I want to apply for a 457 Visa as "Other Sport Instructor" and due to time constraints, can only register for an IELTS Academic exam.

The 457 visa booklet states:

Applicants only need to take the general training test unless advised otherwise by a registration or licensing body.

To me this implies that the general training exam is a lesser exam than the academic exam- but will an academic result be accepted even if I don't need it for registration or a licensing body?

Has anyone submitted a 457 visa application with IELTS results from the academic exam?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

That is definitely not a problem . DIBP will accept either General or Academic IELTS results. What passport do you hold.?
