Are you an applicant looking forward to migrate to Australia under 189 visa, 190 visa or 489 visa?
But, failing to lodge the visa application due to short of 5 points?
Well, getting accredited in community language can help you claim "five bonus points”.
Yes!! You are hearing it right!
From January 2018, NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) has introduced a new test as a part of its new certification system. And, this test is popularly known as the NAATI CCL Test.
What is NAATI CCL Test?
NAATI CCL (Credentialed Community Language) Test assesses your ability to convey the meaning of a conversation from English to Language Other Than English (LOTE) and vice versa. On clearing this test, you are awarded 5 extra points towards your Australia Permanent Residency visa application.
It is said that the Skill Select Invitation Rounds will be running tough this year. So, it would become essential to clear the NAATI CCL Test apart from your high band score in IELTS/PTE test in order to receive an invitation from Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Only then, you will be eligible to apply for PR in Australia.
Before the CCL Assessment test was introduced, applicants appeared for para-professional or professional level tests to gain those 5 points. One could appear for para-professional test from 12 overseas locations. But, NAATI CCL Test is available only within Australia. You cannot appear for this test from an overseas location.
