    Hi,

     

    I just noticed this on our application for state sponsorship.

    IELTS/Occupation

     

    Even though you are applying from the United Kingdom, your occupation requires that you provide proof that you have a IELTS score of 6.5 in each band. Common proof is IELTS result..

     

    I thought 6.5 meant you did not have to sit an IELTS if from the UK and your job has a score of 6.5 or under

     

    We are applying under my wife who is a hairdresser.

     

    Please any info would be great I am having a nervo

    Hi

     

    Just checked and a Hairdresser special requirements is IELTS 6.5 Band and as per the Make the Move website, it states if you hold a valid passport from the UK and where the requirement is less than 7.0 no IELTS test is required.

     

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

     

    This is what I believed to be the case but quoting the form on state sponsorship it say

    IELTS/Occupation

     

    Even though you are applying from the United Kingdom, your occupation requires that you provide proof that you have a IELTS score of 6.5 in each band. Common proof is IELTS result.

     

    I dont get it

    My OH is a Painter and Decorator, his requirement was 6.5 like your wife's occupation, he has not taken the test and we have had our SA SS approved. All you need to do is send a copy of your passport (your wifes) along with the rest of the hard copies. Where are you reading that from?

    I have just lodged my SA SS and I am a hairdresser and I can confirm hairdressers don't have to take the test, I double checked with my visa agent, not sure what they put on the form though! :)

    It could be Jason because, just because you are applying from the UK, it doesn't nec. mean you have a UK passport so you need the proof of either the IELTS test result or your UK passport (as this counts the same as a 6.5 IELTS test result). That's how I read it, with the requirements you don't need the IELTS etc, anyway.
