As far i know there is no rule saying that we have to have english language requirements for 887 visa as we already have given ielts before coming to Australia during 489 visa process?????.... please kindly reply...
 
New to the forum. I have the same issue as posted above. I was the main applicant which hold 489 visa and now when I applied 887 they requested me IELTS. I called the hotline and they provided me with an email (skill support) to get a clarification regarding the request as it sounds not necessary. Still waiting for their reply.


Hi, can you please help me also about the English requirement, from 489 to 887 visa... what is the update? Thanks
 
Good afternoon,

I'm close to complete the 2 year requirement to be able to apply to the 887 Visa; I was reading about requirements and is not clear if I need to provide as the main applicant an updated English test, I completed a Master Degree so I think I can provide this certificate the will replace the exam?. But, what about my wife, she needs to provide an English test? We paid for the second installment for her when we applied to the 489, my question is what happen if she doesn't get the score? I would need to pay the VAC2 again?
Many thanks for your help

DHA on 887 said:

Proof of functional English​


Provide proof that all applicants aged 18 years and older, who have not paid the second instalment of the visa application charge in respect of their eligible visa, have at least functional English.

If you can't provide proof of functional English​

Applicants aged 18 years and older, who have not paid the second instalment visa application charge in respect of their eligible visa and can't provide evidence of functional English, will need to pay the second instalment of the visa application charge when we ask for it.

An eligible visa is your current visa based on which you are applying 887.

So, as I understand from the above statement, all applicants need to provide evidence except those who paid VAC2 earlier.

  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
