Orientations on IELTS and IELTS for UKVI sessions

OPEN SESSIONS

At the moment, we are partially resuming our face-to-face activities, carrying out IELTS tests with a reduced number of candidates per session.

We are delivering sessions of IELTS on paper, with limited seats available, in Belém, Brasília, Londrina, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and IELTS on computer tests in Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. IELTS for UKVI and Life Skills tests are being delivered in Brasília, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

For more details, check our test dates, fees and locations page.

We are working with our partners in other cities to announce new dates for 2021. Once the schedule is defined, it will be posted on our online registration portal.

CHANGES IN SESSIONS

To safely carry out IELTS exams, we have adopted a series of protocols, following the guidelines of local governments and the World Health Organization (WHO). Read more on our biosafety measures for IELTS.

Due to the need to adapt spaces for better compliance with these measures, some sessions may be held on a different venue from the one informed at the moment of your registration. Please also note that, due to the Covid-19 effects, sudden changes of date may still occur. For this reason, we ask that candidates stay tuned for communications that will be sent via email and contact us at ielts@britishcouncil.org.br in case of doubts.

SUSPENDED SESSIONS

It has not yet been possible to resume our face-to-face activities in some cities. Therefore, we inform that IELTS tests are temporarily suspended in Campinas, Goiânia, Natal, Salvador e Uberlândia.

For information about other cities, please contact your local test centre.

We are considering opening new sessions to accommodate affected test-takers. If you prefer, you can request a transfer for one of the sessions already available on our calendar or cancel your registration by contacting us at ielts@britishcouncil.org.br.

POSTING OF CERTIFICATES AND ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Please be advised that there is a delay in processing the following services:

  • Posting of physical copies of the Test Report Form (TRF)
  • Additional copies of TRF
  • Enquiry on Results (EOR)
  • Cancellation and refunds

We appreciate your understanding.

Looking after your health

Our top priority is your health and safety. Read more on our biosafety measures for IELTS.
