English Language Requirement For ILR-IELTS Academic

Post by sunny007 » Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:06 pm

Hello every one,

I am trying to figure out each documents for my ILR Application ? during my search i found the following link from the UKBA website , so i'm assuming that i don't need to give Ielts test again, because following both conditions are true in my case, ( note : I have passed IELTS Academic)
I have read some where in the form that IELTS Academic is not acceptable for ILR, Can any one please forward me the link where its say that Ielts Academic is not acceptable for ILR? because in english language test they have mention following two points , which both fits in my condition, do i need to pass the test again?

If your qualification has run out
Some recognised test qualifications only last for 2 years. You can still use a B1 level qualification that you took more than 2 years ago in 2 situations.

Applying to settle in the UK
You can use a B1 level qualification that’s run out if both of the following are true:

it’s on the current list of recognised tests
it was accepted for another UK immigration application, eg when you got permission to enter

Above both statements are true in my case,

If you explain which category you are applying ILR ie spouse etc ? IELTS test passed date, a brief immigration history, someone can give you better information because UKVI only accepted SELT approved tests from approved test centres.

Best thing is you need to check ILR application form and guidance it should be mentioned there whether IELTS Acadmic is acceptable or not ? It should say IELTS for UKVI ... expired TEST is accepted if all three conditions are met , correct level of test , category and approved test centre,,, SELT ...
However, sometimes UKVI do ask for new updated test even all above conditions are met...

Thanks Bluebird for your answer, I think it is better to give fresh test rather than taking £3000 risk, can any one confirm the following test is acceptable ? I've checked the Approved test list, and as per my understanding it is acceptable, but on the safe side just need a confirmation from the senior member.

Thanks CR001 for your prompt respone as usual :), I'm not sure whether i need to open a new thread for this or should i continue asking different question in the same thread?

My transit visa was rejected in 2017 when travelling through Qatar airways, I have applied for my transit visa before my travelling and then i got an email that your transit visa application has been refused without further information, Now my question is should i explain this in my ILR Visa application ?

because in Travel history (other) part there is a question
Have you ever been:
refused a visa for any country other than the UK
deported from any country other than the UK
removed from any country other than the UK
required to leave any country other than the UK
refused entry at the border of any country other than the UK

Any suggestion , and if i declare then will it impact my ILR application?
