The IELTS Partners are committed to protecting the health of our test takers, while also trying to minimise disruption to life-changing opportunities for international higher education and migration.

In the vast majority of locations, IELTS testing is going ahead, with additional precautions in place to help protect the health of test takers and staff.

To protect the health of IELTS test takers in light of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), IELTS tests are currently suspended in Spain and Ireland.


Testing has resumed in Switzerland, Poland, Romania, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland. Some testing has resumed in Italy.
