The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
The International English Language Test System is a government-approved and internationally renowned English Language test. It is used in cases in which you are required to prove your English Language abilities to apply for certain UK visas. The IELTS UKVI regulated test assesses each of the four key areas of your language abilities: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
If you are applying for a UK visa or to settle in the UK and you are from a non-English speaking country, you will need to prove your knowledge of English.
Our immigration lawyers can help you to practice your IELTS test. IAS have specially designed English test for citizenship practice tests. Our lawyers can use these to help you prepare to meet your English Language requirements. Get in touch online or call 0333 363 8577 for advice about your specific English Language requirements.
The IELTS test is a government approved test which shows the Home Office, Universities and UK Businesses that you have met these requirements.
Most adults applying for a visa on the UK Points-Based System are required to demonstrate competence in all four areas of the English Language, and this is the same for anyone applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK or for British Citizenship.
Children entering the UK on a Dependent Child Visa will not have to take the IELTS test unless they are registering as a British Citizen.
The UK has more than 50 locations where you can take the IELTS test. You can also take the test in a variety of different countries around the world if you are not in the UK, in person or online.
Obtaining an English Language qualification can be complicated; it is often difficult to know which UK visas require applicants to meet English Language requirements and to what level.
Your lawyer can talk you through everything that is expected of you, how you should prepare and the kind of content which will be covered in each section of the IELTS UKVI test.
