The British Council received the permission from the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training to resume IELTS exam on Friday, one day after IDP Education was granted the same approval.

The approval allows the British Council to cooperate with Dong A Education Tech Ltd., ODIN Education JSC and University Access Centre Vietnam Ltd. to organize the tests.

Hanoi, Hai Phong City, north-central Nghe An Province, central Thua Thien-Hue Province, and Ho Chi Minh City are the British Council’s five licensed exam venues.

The mentioned companies have to inform People’s Committees at provincial and municipal levels about exam schedules at least five days in advance and are required to submit reports on their operations every six months, before June 25 and December 25, to the education ministry.

The British Council and IDP Education are the only two IELTS test organizers in Vietnam.

The education ministry issued a similar decision to permit IDP Education to resume the test on Thursday.

Last week, both the British Council and IDP announced the temporary postponement of all tests until further notice.

The reason for the suspension was that test organizers had not completed their legal dossiers as per the regulations.

The two IELTS test organizers just submitted the required document to the education ministry earlier this week.
