  • English Language Requirement for Australian 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.
