ETS to be removed from secure English language tests

19 June 2014

From 1 July 2014, Educational Testing Service (ETS) will be no longer licensed by the Home Office to award Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) iBT tests for UK immigration purposes.


However, transitional arrangements will be in place to ensure that genuine applicants who have not yet applied for a visa are not unduly affected by this change. Those who have booked a test with ETS but not yet taken your test should use another test provider.


This change affects those relying on an ETS certificate in their visa application, including settlement and naturalization applicants. However, Higher Education Institutions will still have the ability to decide whether to accept an ETS certificate as evidence of knowledge of the English language, even if the test is taken after the Immigration Rules change.


If you are making an application and have any questions in regards to your immigration matters, please contact us on +44 20 3384 3075, or via email info@migraco.com.
