Dear Test Takers

Thank you very much for registering to the IELTS test with Eiken
On 3 April, In response to the rapidly evolving situation, Eiken Foundation of Japan has announced cancellation for all IELTS sessions across Japan scheduled for Saturday 4 April, Sunday 5 April, Saturday 11 April and Sunday 12 April. We have been monitoring the situation closely to resume our services but the situation has unfortunately intensified.


As per the one-month long state of emergency announcement by the government and self-restraint requests from governors of major cities to prevent further spread of the virus, we have decided to extend our cancellation to all sessions in April.

We feel we cannot provide a safe and stable testing environment under the current state to test takers and our staff alike. We aim to resume our services from 9 May’s session.

The sessions which was/will be affected are as follows:

Saturday 4 April

Sunday 5 April

Saturday 11 April

Sunday 12 April

Saturday 18 April

Sunday 19 April

Thursday 30 April


We plan to provide a refund or transfer of test date to test takers who had registered for these dates. We will share further details on the procedures for the above as soon as possible.
We sincerely apologise for any inconveniences this may cause and thank you for your understanding and support at this difficult times.
