Can I still sit an English test?

Whether or not English tests are still available depends on the English test provider and the location you wish to sit the test. Tests may be suspended or offered with reduced availability. For more information, please visit the websites of the approved English test providers for Australian visas:


What if I can’t sit an English test before I apply for a new visa?
The English requirement must be met at the time of application for some visas, such as skilled permanent residence visas. If you apply for one of these visas without valid evidence that you meet the English requirement, your application will be refused.

If you are applying for a visa where English is not a time of application requirement, you can still lodge the visa application and will be given additional time to complete and provide your English test results.
