Question Regarding IELTS for Spouse while applying 189/190


Me and my wife are planning to apply for 189/190 PR Visa.

We both gave IETLS and my score was overall 7, but had less than 6 in reading section whereas my wife had overall 8.5 and she scored 8 in all sections.

Putting my wife as primary applicant we are able to cross 60 points without considering 5 points of Partner Skill.

1) My question is if my wife applies as primary applicant and put me as dependent and we don't seek 5 points for Partner Skills. Do I still need to retake IELTS to get band 6 in all sections or we can go ahead with my existing score.

2) Also is there limitation/advantage of applying with 5 points of Partner Skills (Assuming we can still make 60 points without it) ?

Any response would be helpful.

If your wife is the primary applicant, you need at least 4.5 in each section of IELTS to prove functional English in order to avoid the secondary payment. It sounds like you have achieved this with your IELTS result.

It's possible your wife will receive an earlier invitation for her visa if you have 65 points, but 60 points is sufficient to apply.
