I am the primary applicant and my husband is the secondary applicant. I have a question regarding my husband’s assessment required to claim the additional 5 spouse points. He has completed B. COM (bachelor of commerce) from University of Punjab. Unfortunately, this degree is not recognized as equivalent to Australian bachelors. But he has more than 15 years of work experience in Accounts/Finance and tax. My question is do we need to get his qualification and work experience assessed?
Second question is on the IELTS requirement. I will be applying as an External Auditor and needed IELTS Academic with 7 in each category. As he is the secondary applicant (Finance Manager/ Tax Accountant), will he also need to score 7 in IELTS academic?
