All primary immigration applicants must meet the English language requirement, unless they have been nominated for a position that does not require English language assessment for licensing or registration. Following are the people who are exempted from English language assessment or IELTS test:
- Applicants whose first language is English and are a passport holder from Canada, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom or the United States of America.
- If the nominated occupation of the applicant is included in the highly skilled major groups, 1-3, of the Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) that consists of managers, administrators, professionals and associate professionals.
- If the applicant has completed at least five years of continuous full time secondary and/or tertiary education at an institution where at least 80 percent of the instructions is conducted in English.
- If the applicant is nominated in a skilled health occupation, they will be required to be assessed as per Occupational English Test (OET) and need not sit for an IELTS test.
So, all the applicants in the mentioned categories are lucky not to bother about appearing for an IELTS test that makes the Australian immigration process easier for them to qualify. However, collecting necessary documents and skills assessment for the nominated occupation still needs to be dealt with. Consultation and assistance of an Australian immigration expert is priceless in these matters, as they make the whole process of relocation to a distant land a very stress-free task.
