English Language Requirement – 186 ENS & 187 RSMS Visas

 

You and all adult dependents who are over 18 and are included in your Subclass 186 ENS or 187  RSMS visa application will need to satisfy the applicable English language requirement.

 

Primary applicant

 

The threshold English language requirement does vary depending on whether you are applying under the Direct Entry (“DE’) or Temporary Residency Transition (“TRT”) stream.

Under the TRT stream, you need to have ‘vocational’ English language ability. The English examination scores that you need to achieve for Vocational English are as follows: 

  Listening Reading Writing Speaking
IELTS 5 5 5 5
TOEFL iBT 4 4 14 14
PTE Academic 36 36 36 36
OET B B B B

 

Under the DE stream, you need to have ‘competent’ English language ability. The English examination scores that you need to achieve for Competent English are as follows: 

  Listening Reading Writing Speaking
IELTS 6 6 6 6
TOEFL iBT 12 13 21 18
PTE Academic 50 50 50 50
OET B B B B

 

The relevant English examination must be completed in the 3 year period prior to lodgement of the application. An examination result which is obtained after lodgement, or if the examination was completed before the 3 year period that precedes the lodgement of the application, then this examination result will not be accepted. Satisfying the English language requirement is a ‘time of application’ requirement.

Results from an Academic or General IELTS examination will be accepted.

The applicant needs to satisfy the minimum score for each of the test components. Your average score is not relevant. Also, you need to achieve the required result in one examination seating. You can’t accumulate the required scores in each test component over multiple examinations.

 

Exemption 1 – Holding a passport from an English speaking country

 

Anyone holding a passport from the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, the Republic of Ireland or New Zealand will satisfy the English language requirement. This exemption applies to both the TRT stream and the DE stream.

 

Exemption 2 (TRT stream only) – Completing 5 years of studying

 

As the primary applicant in a TRT visa application, you are exempted from having to demonstrate ‘vocational’ English if you’ve completed at least 5 years of full-time study in a secondary and/or higher education institution where all of the tuition was delivered in English. You will need to obtain a letter from the relevant institution confirming that the instructing language of all your studies was English.

 

Exemption 3 – Earnings of $180,001 or more

 

If your guaranteed annual salary as confirmed in the 187 or 187 nomination application is above $180,001 (i.e. your salary puts you into Australia’s highest individual income tax bracket), then you are exempted from having to demonstrate ‘vocational’ or ‘competent’ English language ability. However, you still need to show that you have ‘functional’ English language ability (see below explanation).

 

Dependents who are over 18 – Functional English language ability

 

All adult dependents who are over 18 years of age will need to demonstrate ‘functional’ English language ability. This can be demonstrated in a number of ways:

  1. Complete all years of primary education and at least 3 years of secondary education at educational institutions in which all instruction was conducted in English; or
  2. Complete at least 5 years of secondary education at institutions in which all instruction was conducted in English; or
  3. Achieve English examination results outlined below; or
  4. Complete in Australia at least 1 year of full-time study or equivalent part-time study towards a degree, higher degree, diploma, or associate diploma at an institution or institutions where all the instruction was conducted in English; or
  5. Hold an award (being a degree, a higher degree, a diploma or a trade certificate) that required at least 2 years of full-time study or training; and all instruction (including instruction received in other courses for which the person was allowed credit) for that award was conducted in English.

Required Scores to establish Functional English are as follows:

Test component Average test score
IELTS 4.5
TOEFL iBT 32
PTE Academic 30

 

As I mentioned above, all applicants will need to demonstrate that they have functional English language ability. If you’re exempted under either Exemption 1 or 2 above, then the basis of your exemption also demonstrate that you have ‘functional’ English.

If you’re relying on Exemption 3 (high salary), then you need to demonstrate that you have functional English language ability by providing evidence that demonstrates satisfaction of one of the above.

 

Secondary visa application charge (SVAC)

 

This needs to be paid if anyone in your application who does not satisfy the English language requirement that applies to them. However, as the primary applicant, you need to meet the English language requirement. If you do not meet the English language requirement – then one of the exemptions outlined above must apply to you. If one of the exemptions apply to you as the primary applicant, then you need to pay the SVAC if you also do not have ‘functional’ English language ability.

This fee is paid at the time of decision so your case officer will contact you at the time that the payment is required.

As the primary applicant, if you don’t have functional English language ability, then the SVAC is $8,520. For other adult dependents that can’t demonstrate functional English, the SVAC is $4,520.

    Hi Peng.

    I was wondering if you can help me. I’ve got an IELTS certificate expired on November 2016. My wife and I are just about to apply for RSMS visa.
    My question is: do I need to do another IELTS exam? Is that exam valid for 2 or 3 years?
    If it’s 3 I guess I’m fine.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Peng Cheng

    I need your advise. I’m about to lodge my visa 189 and had a shock of my life. My wife’s took her PTE and couldn’t score the required overall to prove her functional english requirement and the results were out yesterday evening. I was upset and started looking at the alternatives as she has clearly stated that she won’t go back to the testing again. Found that we can get a confirmation from the school and her intermediate college that her studies were completed with English as instruction language. I have engaged my relatives to fetch these declarations signed off by the respective principals.

    To my agony just now, I received a notification from PTE that the score report has been sent to DIBP. Say I lodge the visa while checking the option “yes, dependent has the functional english” and submit the declaration from school(primary/secondary) and intermediate (senior secondary school) will it conflict and treated as improper? DIBP already received her PTE score report which states she didn’t score the needed to prove her functional english…

    The only worry I have at the moment is,if I submit the bonafide cert from school confirming the medium of instruction to be English and if the CO finds about the PTE ( thanks to Pearson for making my life miserable) would it jeopardize my case in any way?

    This is the only concern. I hope I had found the link to australian education system before. I could have saved time and lodged the visa almost a month ago.

      Hi Husamin,
      Your wife can complete the English exam again – Department can accept examination results obtained after lodgement for dependent applications.
      You can pay the secondary fee if she doesn’t satisfy English – see above post.

      1. Husamin

        Thanks PC.

        As I mentioned she isn’t willing to go back to the examination for she isn’t comfortable using computers and she feels stressed out during the preparation. I’m aware about the two suggestion you mentioned that DIBP will accept exam results that were taken post lodgment and VAC2, but the concern I have is, will the CO still refer to the PTE which I won’t be referring to in my visa application? For the column, does he/she has functional english at least, we select Yes and upload her school cert where it is stated that her medium of instruction is English. This is inline with the fact that people take as many as 10-12 attempts to clear the required band in the english test and all of them are reported to DIBP and only the one that is mentioned in the visa application is considered for reference. Multiple vendors like PTE, IELTS, TOEFL etc send out their reports.

        What do you think? Thanks for your response to be.

        Cheers!

    Hi Peng,

    I am currently lodging my 186 visa under direct entry stream using the online application. There is a question in the application, under the language-related exemption declarations, which asks whether the applicant’s nominated employment is exempted by DIBP.

    My nominated occupation is University Lecturer. With this nomination, there is an exemption for age limit and skills assessments. Do you know if this also applies for exemption to the language requirement? If not, why does the DIBP website provides this option?

    Hi Peng, My husband has approved sponsorship for RSMS Direct Entry 187 visa, however he could not lodge the application because he could not get the required score for english test. The sponsorship is valid until March 2017 and our current visa will expire on May 2107. He is an accredited (Advanced)coach in Queensland.. He’s been employed as a coach since 2013. Would it be possible to lodge the application for residency before the sponsorship expires? He has completed all the requirements except for the english test.

    “have the required skills and qualifications for the position (at time of application lodgement you must have the required skills and qualifications for the position you have been nominated for – you must hold any mandatory registration, license or professional membership, or you must already be fully assessed as suitable by the relevant body)”

Unfortunately, i received an assessment outcome letter claiming that my qualification is not recognised by EA.
