English Language Testing Options

Published 26th August 2014, 3:33pm

With immediate effect and subsequent to a press release dated May 22, 2014, the Department of Immigration (DOI) wishes to update the public on the options for English language testing.  Prospective employees whose first language is not English will continue to have the option of taking an English language test in their native country or here in the Cayman Islands.


The Department of Immigration, during a review of a requirement for overseas English Language Testing, will for the next few months allow both options for the benefit of both businesses and potential employees.
DOI introduced the requirement for overseas English Language Testing on 1 July to make the testing more convenient for potential employees. Two companies administer the test throughout the world – the International English Language Test (IELTS) and Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC).


Prospective employees may still attend a relevant centre in their respective country or travel to the Cayman Islands for testing.
