    What is A2 English language requirement?

    Hello everyone!

    This is Pamela. Hope someone would help me clarify if I need to take at least A2 English test to apply for FLR. I have A1 cert when I applied for my spouse visa in 2015.

    Thank you very much!

    They changed the English requirement for those getting the extension visas or FLR. Technically, your English proficiency should be increasing as the time goes on living here in the UK, hence they want you to have passed an A2 level English test. You can find more details here.

    https://www.gov.uk/government/upload..._of_intent.pdf

    If the test you submitted for your spouse visa is just A1, you need to take a new English test to pass the A2 level. If I were you though, I would rather get a B1 level in English because it will save you getting another English test for ILR and citizenship.

    Hi Miss Rayna, my friend is due to apply for ILR next month. Apparently, according to the Citizen's Advice Bureau, she needs to retake another English test, but she already passed the B1 level before she applied for her FLR 2 years ago. Pls enlighten x

    Thanks in advance

    In my opinion B1 is fine for your FLR, I advised my partner to take the B1 simply because she need NOT take another English test for FLR, I hope I was right in advising her to do that, hopefully someone can confirm this.

    If the test provider is still included in the approved list, then she doesn't need to retake the test.

    Yes. You should submit all expired passports you used when you migrated to UK. It is stated in Section 11 of the Set(M) form.
