What Score do you Need?

A number of Commonwealth countries use IELTS scores as proof of prospective immigrant’s competence in English. Each country has different score requirements for different types of visa. Below are some examples, but it is best to check with the immigration agent you are dealing with.


  1. Competent English (IELTS Score 6.0): ENS and RSMS visas through the Direct Entry Stream, Skilled Migration.
  2. Proficient English (IELTS Score 7.0): Points Tested Skills visas (to obtain 10 points).
  3. Superior English (IELTS Score 8.0): Points Tested Skills visas (to obtain 20 points).


  1. Skilled Migrant: Principle applicant must achieve an IELTS score of 6.5, partners and children aged 16 and over must achieve 5.0.
  2. Business Categories: Principle applicants must achieve an IELTS score of 5.0.


Canada uses the Canadian Language Benchmarks and prospective immigrants are expected to score between 4.0 to 7.0 depending on the visa category they require.

A Brief Outline of the IELTS Test

The International English Language Testing System (or IELTS as it’s commonly known), is a high quality, internationally recognized English language evaluation of great accuracy and integrity.  The IELTS test system is extremely reliable and is an accurate assessment of a person’s English language ability. The test is specifically taken by people who are looking to study internationally or to verify their language ability for immigration purposes.

There are two versions to the test: the  Academic version and the General Training version.

  • IELTS Academic is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and other institutions of higher education, and for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practise in an English-speaking country.
  • IELTS General Training is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.

IELTS is accepted by most Australian, British, Canadian and New Zealand academic institutions, by over 3,000 academic institutions in the United States, and by various professional organisations across the world.

IELTS is the only Secure English Language Test approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for visa customers applying both outside and inside the UK. It is also a requirement for immigration to Australia and New Zealand. In Canada, IELTS, TEF, or CELPIP are accepted by the immigration authority.

In 2014, 2.5 million tests were taken in more than 140 countries. In 2007, IELTS administered more than one million tests in a single 12-month period for the first time ever, making it the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and immigration.
