UK ETS tests for visa process
The government of UK has announced that its license agreement with ETS has not been extended.

According to Christine Douglas, National Lead for Temporary Migration, the license agreement with ETS in UK and abroad has ended on 5th April, 2014 and has not been extended.

ETS administers international tests including TOEFL, TOEIC, etc. which are mostly used by the Visa applicants to prove their English language proficiency as part of the visa approval process.

ETS has stated in its website that it has decided not to extend their ‘SELT’ known as ‘Secure English-language Testing’ with the Home office. As a consequence, TOEFL and TOEIC tests would no longer to be considered for the UK visa granting process. However, the applicants willing to file their applications for UK visa can choose some other approved options provided by the UK government.

The license agreement has not been extended due to the fraud exposed by BBC Panorama in February 2014.

According to the spokesperson for TOEFL, the test can still be used as part of the visa process to be granted admissions in the universities. However, it cannot be used for UK visa approval process.
