The skilled independent visa (189) costs around the $3500 mark and has English language requirements. Maybe the OP's RMA is a bit confused. Either that, or they have shares in an IELTS centre!

When i will get the exact link i will let you.

By the way, my agent don't have any shares!! He earlier sent me a link which was like 6 months old, and immigration information may get updated. So i will have to contact him tomorrow. Also, that ielts exam she sat was in India and not here.

You can confirm with Auzzies Group (most popular agent currently) with that. 820 Visa category has more processing time as mentioned in the DIBP website. There is a slight difference between 309 and 820 as per my knowledge.

309 visa category has 75% application processed within 13 months and 90 % in 16 months.

Nevertheless i am happy to wait until i have further doubts and querries. I am looking forward for my wife's visa very eagerly. The final phone interview by New delhi was done couple of months ago, my friends wife had her interview in april and she got her visa in June.

Fingers crossed.???? Please pray for the visas??

Yes KQueen, I am aware of that requirement for that visa.

Getting requirements wrong for a RMA is not very good and shows the standard level of service you can expect. Many posters on here that are not Agents of any description often point out the PMV marriage requirement is from grant date not entry date (that can be many months after grant date). Yet this company has it clearly as from arrival in Australia. Maybe this agent came to Australia on a 309 and does not understand English well enough to know when what English requirements are for what visas?

Disclaimer - I did not see that this agent or company required English test requirement - only what the OP has stated. But the web site has much flawed info, I stopped reading.

May be you might have bad experiences of some agent. Please don't accuse someone in such way. That company is not obviously controlled by a single person. If you are in Melbourne, I can take you there and ask him to speak with you. For me and lot other they are Genuine! Just becoz you don't know the migration agent, don't assume anything. Thanks

Mate!

They have incorrect statements on their web page, it is not an accusation it is a fact - and from the link you provided.

Now I have pointed out some of the errors that they have on their website and have informed you why they are errors. It seems many also think that the English test or the $3.5K is another error (I have not been corrected on this yet).

So on face value and with my limited knowledge I am very sceptical of your agency - oh they maybe legitimate as our governments is, but that does not mean they are good.

As I have said they have too many errors on their web page for me to consider using them.

P.S. I am more than happy to talk with your agent, but first refer him/her to this thread, so they fully understand what the conversation is about - they may also address their web page as a matter of urgency too.

Think what you want about your agent but they are either very clearly incorrect on partner visa requirements or you have seriously misunderstood them. Either way, hopefully for you the actual application and evidence was done correctly.

We hate to be pushy on the subject of IELTS but there are many people that follow this forum even though they never post anything and we don't want them being misinformed on visa requirements because you're claiming it to be a requirement for a partner visa. Hence why we are asking for a DIBP source. Unless DIBP says it's a 309 requirement, then it is not a requirement. We're more than happy to be proven wrong if it means people get accurate information and will correct our posts if that's the case.

If you have a read through the Partner Migration Booklet provided by DIBP as a guide to partner visa applications and requirements, you'll see there is no mention of IELTS.

Did you request a link from your "registered Migration Agent"?

or is it time we ask them directly?
