Hi, i've undergone the ielts exam back in June 25, 2016 and got the band 5.5 but unfortunately due to some reasons i couldn't make my visa application however i am about to apply for uk innovator visa; can you help me to understand if i can apply with the same ielts certificate?? it says (it is recommended that candidates language ability be re-assessed after 2-years but it never says they certificate is valid till 2-years only) Your clear response would be very much appreciable to this response. Kind Regards, ALi

Thank you for getting in touch with us.

The IELTS test is valid for a period of 2 years. The certificate you hold has expired and you will be required to meet the English language requirement for Innovator visa at the time of application. 

If you require anything further, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0203 959 9123 or contact us here: https://otssolicitors.co.uk/contact
