What IELTS score my spouse require for Skilled migration category.

Hi All,

I am planning to apply for NZ skilled migration category with my wife and child.
As per the requirements for English language, I have already secured 8 overall.

The only confusion I am having is for my wife for whom I am claiming 20 points for qualification, is that whether she requires to attain band 5 across all the sections or will it be 6.5 overall in IELTS.

Please reply me as to what IELTS score my spouse would require to get for Skilled migration category.


Hi Rohit,

If u are claiming points for your wife then she should have an avg score of 6.5.
