which IELTS for skilled immigration? Academic or General?

Post by zeusmagnanimous » Mon Feb 27, 2017 2:09 pm

I have searched on the aus visa site and this forum but could not find a definitive answer. Which IELTS is required for australian immigration under 189 skilled immigration. Is it General or Academic?
Someone mentioned in a place that your occupation category will decide which IELTS you have to take although I could not find anywhere which one is needed for which occupation. I will be applying under software engineering occupation category if that helps.
