Confusion in counting of Partner points (skilled)

ConboyboyConboyboy Sa puso moPosts: 260Member

Any members with the same dilemma?

I am quite confused on the wording regarding spouse points/ partner skills.

My wife's occupation is listed in Short term skilled (STSOL). Positive skills assessment obtained. Competent english

My occupation is listed in Medium and Long term (MLTLSSL). Positive skills assessment obtained. Competent english

Since we are applying separately for visa (to get more chances). Both of us are applying for visa 190 (as wife is not under 189 stream)

  1. Can the short term skilled STSOL wife claim for points from husband who is in the MLTSSL? And vice versa?

The wording in the immi says must be:

“had nominated a skilled occupation that is on the same skilled occupation list as your nominated skilled occupation”

I am confused with the technicality of this clause.

Can anyone provide guidance please.

    Both STSOL and MLTSSL are eligible for 190, so I think you can claim points for each other's skilled occupation.

    Both STSOL and MLTSSL are eligible for 190, so I think you can claim points for each other's skilled occupation.

    Meron kasi ganitong note:
    "had nominated a skilled occupation that is on the same skilled occupation list as your nominated skilled occupation"

    So kung primary is STSOL, dapat sa STSOL din yung partner mo?
    Kung MLTSSL, dapat dun din sa list ng MLTSSL yung partner?

    My understanding with this is that both occupations that you are claiming points for should be eligible under the same Subclass. For example, if main applicant is applying for 190, the partner's skill should also be available for 190. Applicant cannot claim points if partner's occupation is only available under 491.

    When you submit the EOI, you will be asked to enter the ANZSCO code of your partner's occupation and it will recognize if you are eligible to claim points for it. It will give you a summary of points at the end.

    Can you clarify, are you applying for a visa separately? Or just lodging your EOI. EOI lodgement us not a visa application.

    Hi Hi! We intend to lodge the EOI separately and we just want to make we are claiming the points accurately. We are trying to lodge separate EOI so that we have better chances of getting invited.

    My wife is under STSOL (only allowed for 190 and not 189) and my nominated occupation is inside MLTSSL (allowed for 189 and 190).

    So.... are we able to claim points for each other's EOI application?

    Both can claim 10 points for 190 and 491. Just enter details on skillselect, it will calculate on its own.

    Hello @Conboyboy, would just like to ask if you claimed points for the partner? I have the same question. I am in MLTSSL and my partner is in STSOL, can I claim for 10 points? my partner has competent English as well. Would appreciate your response. Thank you so much!!

    You could claim 10 for 190 and 491. 5 on 189.

    Hi Sometimeshaveasked, i have replied your msg.

    Auto claim yan basta i - fill up mo yung EOI mo and your partner accordingly. If I remember correctly, 5 pts lang na claim ko sa wife ko since di kami same stream ng STSOL/MLTSSL.

    Ako - CPM - MLTSSL
    wife - Specialist Manager NEC - STSOL

    Good thing sa 190, plus 5 sa partner, plus 5 sa state. Goods na din naka 10 (total 90). HTH
