Year-end and New Year Holiday deadline for various applications


The Eiken Foundation of Japan and the IELTS office (Tokyo/ Osaka Centre) will be closed for Winter Holidays from Tuesday 29 December to Monday 4 January.

To ensure secure processing of the requests received before the holidays, we have set up a request submission deadline as follows:


Deadline of submission: 11:59 am (JST) Friday 25 December


●Additional TRF

All complete and intact requests received by the deadline will be processed and sent out to the respective institutions within 2020.  However, requests which are found to be incomplete or insufficient will be processed from Tuesday 5 January 2020, after all relevant information has been confirmed.

Additional time may be required for delivery as postal services will be operating with reduced hours during this period.

Also, please bear in mind that all mails are subject to delay due to the substantial reduction of flight/cargo frequencies and cancellations caused by COVID-19.

Some countries and regions are yet to recover from temporal suspension of international deliveries.


●EOR (Relevant Test Date: 21 November 2020)

All EOR requests for 21 November 2020’s session must arrive by the above deadline. 

This includes the completed request form and proof of deposit being made.  Requests missing any of these items will be considered incomplete and will not be processed.  EOR for 21 November’s session cannot be processed after the New Year’s as the application deadline at our UK headquarters will have passed.


●Issue of Receipts

Requests received by the above deadline will be processed within 2020.  The request must be complete with all the relevant information.

We wish you have a merry and festive season.  Importantly, please stay safe and healthy.
