IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration


The exam department for the British Council in Japan will be closed from Tuesday 27th December 2016 to Wednesday 4th January 2017 for Winter Holidays.

In line with the winter holidays, our Additional TRF service will be closed during this period as well. Due to this time being a busy period for posting mail, we will only accept and process Additional TRF requests received by 5pm Thursday 22nd December 2016.

Any requests received after 5pm Thursday 22th December 2016 will be processed from Thursday 5th January 2017.

The result for 17th December 2016 will be dispatched on 6th of January 2017.

We thank you for your kind understanding.

Do you need to prove your English language level for a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) application?

IELTS is on the UKVI list of approved Secure English Language Tests (SELT). If you need an IELTS test result as part of your application to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), you will need to take your test at a specific test location authorised by UKVI.

Please note: if you are applying for a Tier 4 student visa for a program of study at degree level or above at a Higher Education Institution, you should check the English language requirement of your chosen institution, as most institutions do not require a SELT for this purpose.
