IELTS Vancouver - ILAC | 2022 COVID-19 Policy
ILAC’s IELTS test centres remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to operate a reliable schedule of paper and computer tests. We are closely monitoring all health, safety and travel updates from the BC Government.
Please find information below about ILAC Vancouver’s 2022 COVID-19 policy for IELTS test centres.
COVID-19 Transfer Policy
If you are unable to take your test due to COVID-19 symptoms or possible contact with someone who has tested positive, you are eligible for one (1) test date transfer. No evidence is required.
Please contact us as soon as possible, and no later than 5 days after your test date. Test takers must submit all required forms and information by this deadline. Failure to include required documentation may result in your request being denied.
Test takers must transfer to an available date. Test credit or refunds are not available. Note that the standard transfer fee applies to all requests ($80).
This policy in effect from January 1, 2022 and will be updated to reflect new changes.
