As you may be aware, governments around the world have introduced health and safety measures and travel restrictions to prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19).

We at IDP IELTS Middle East are committed to protecting the health of our test takers across the region, while also trying to minimise disruption to life-changing opportunities for international higher education and migration.

Therefore, we have had to suspend IELTS testing services in some countries in line with official requirements of healthcare authorities. In these countries, we are putting detailed plans in place to ensure that our test takers are able to take their tests as soon as possible once the official restrictions are removed.

Affected test takers in these countries are encouraged to contact their test centers by email to transfer their tests to a later date or to receive a refund.

On the other hand, we continue to offer IELTS testing services in other countries, while putting into action additional precautions to help protect the health of our test takers and staff.
