can OET test considered as Functional English as it was needed for my wife? 

International English Language Testing System (IELTS) An average band score of at least 4.5 for each of the 4 test components
Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based Test (TOEFL iBT) A total band score of at least 32 based on the 4 test components of speaking, reading, writing and listening
Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) An overall band score of at least 30 for each of the 4 test components
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) An overall band score of at least 147 for each of the four test components

 

My wife got Competent English not Functional English

so I think we are in good shape now, can seniors confirm please?

They will definitely need new AFP and if you have visited your home country after you got the PCC they will need updated PCC as well. I suppose they will ask you for that, but if they don't, don't sit around and wait for it. They will not grant a visa without a current AFP!

Yes I have visited after I apply for a month only 

as for the AFP I forgot how to do it

But I have not stayed over 12 months and that’s the condition in order to get the PCC

I can't commend on that as I haven't been contacted yet, but there are other people in the forum that says their applications still show received.

Please ignore the condition of 12 months, they never stick to it! 🙂 If you went to your home country for 4 weeks, definitely worth updating your PCC again. 🙂

You can upload new police certificates in your immi account. 🙂 To highlight to the officer that they are updated documents, you can make a file name as follows: "Australian_Police_Clearance_UPDATED_MAY_2019". 😉

Adam you log into your immi account, go to your application, attach documents and upload it from there in the evidence of character tab.

Good quality coloured scan is fine. 🙂 

Validity period for all police certificates is 12 months. So, I am afraid, there is an expiry date. 😉 🙂

Apply here ⬆️ It is only $42. 🙂  Worthy investment!

Hey Russki, for PCC, I have a certified copy, but should I submit the scan of the color original, or the certified copy? I have submitted the certified copy but not sure if I should also give them the original scan. As PCC is a legal doc, I am a bit confuse. Thanks in advance

I think, just a certified copy or a coloured scan is fine. But if you want extra safety, submit both. 🙂 You can make one combined PDF with a coloured scan and a certified copy together. 🙂
