Hi there, If I am applying for Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa

This answer was rated:

Hi there,

If I am applying for Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa and I would like to claim points for language skills, can I submit an IELTS test which I have taken 9 years back? Or do I have to sit for a new IELTS exam just for the purpose of this application. My score in the old exam were all 7 or above except for listening it was 6.5.

Thanks

Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to rate my answer 3 STARS OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.

UK_Lawyer :

IELTS exam certificates usually are only valid for 2 years and therefore before any new application you would need to submit a new certificate

Thank you.

Can I take the test few weeks before I apply and send the results along with my application or do I have to notify UKBA of my intention to take the test before I apply?

You can take your test at anytime as long as the results certificate is sent with the application.
