For all visa applicants - the new list of approved English tests is out.


This list changes from time to time - every couple of years. Earlier in the year the government announced a re-tendering exercise ( http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2013/june/84-selt ).

All applicants who are required to take a language test, please check the list and confirm the test you are planning to take is still valid.
