Hello,

I am indian citixen and living in canada from past 4 years my current status in canada is worker. My work permit expires in august 21 and i have already applied for my work permit extendion as i got my provinvial nominee cleared. The question i have is i have done IELTS back in 2012 academic in may with 6.5 bands overall. I was wondering if thats ok for my uk fiance visa? its been 3 years since i have done that test would that be ok or i have to do it again?? Also does that matter that my work permit expires on august 21? nd we are looking to apply on august1 st 2015. If some one can help that would be greatly appreciated.

P.S my fiancee he is british citizen.
thanks

They are the people who have already used the then valid test result for a previous visa application in the same route and now using the expired result for the next, such as first spouse visa followed by renewal after 2.5 years.
In your case, since you are making a fresh application with your fiancé visa, you need a new test pass.

Well, as they always say, don't make any arrangement until you have your visa.

thank you so much for getting back to me i really appreciate that. SO i checked online there is no any test available untill september end. I was thinking of applying with my old IELTS certificate with my study diploma as i have done business administraion 1 year course from university of regina. I work in a hair restoration company nd my company said that they can write me a letter saying how good my english is etc. Would you suggest doing that or not?? Or what my other options can be ?

No, it won't work, and you will be turned down for a visa. They are very strict and apply the rules exactly. You need a bachelor's degree as an alternative to a test pass. No other options other than perhaps going to US to take a test where it's available.
