Question Partner Points- Professional Experience Reqd for Spouse


This is my first thread to this Forum. I want to immigrate to Australia from India under GSM Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175). I want to avail Partner points (5 points) to meet the eligibility criteria.

I am the Primary applicant and my wife is Secondary applicant.
My wifes' qualification is Four Year Bachelors Engineering Degree in Electrical and Electronics. Her Professional experience is 5 years 2 months as Software Developer.

To claim partner points my wifes' skill also has to assesed by ACS along with other requirements. To meet the skill assessment what is the number of years of experience required for my partner.

I am bit confused, because in ACS website it is mentioned that Six(6) years experience is required according to her qualification.

But in Dept of Immigration site, it is given that Parnter satify the basic requirement of

•recent work experience (for at least 12 of the 24 months immediately before lodging your visa application)
•has obtained a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority

So, please confirm what is the number of years of Professional experience required for my wife, so that i can claim partner points.

Having qualifications/experience assessed is an entirely separate function from the visa application and so no point comparing the two.
