When does age count - expression of interest or visa application?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know at which point your age points count? Basically my husband is applying for the 189 visa as he is a teacher but he turns 40 in September. We are just at skills assessment stage at the moment and waiting for IElTS results to come back before we can submit. Then we obviously have to wait for that to come back etc etc. So main question is does age count at expression of interest stage or the visa application? He obviously losing 10 points turning 40! 

Thanks

Marianne

Hopefully, someone will have the definite answer for you.  You will be invited to apply based on the number of points you have.  If you don't have enough points at the initial stage - you won't get an invite.  How many points will your husband have if he loses the age points?

65 or 75 depending on age at application and then hopefully 20 extra with the IElTS - fingers crossed!!

That will get a quick invite. However, do make sure you have calculated points correctly as 95 with a max ILETS score is unusually high and ovet alimony a single point gets a refusal (loss of fee) and potentially even a ban on reapplying
