Important notice

Please note that there are websites pretending to be British Council IELTS registration sites. They are not associated with us and we are not responsible for the content on those sites.

Before you enter any personal details, please make sure that you are using our secure online registration system and check that “British Council” is spelt correctly.

Examination dates and locations

You can take the IELTS test in Kabul. All registrations are handled by the British Council in Afghanistan. 

Places are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend that candidates register two months before their chosen test date but places may be available after this date. 

Venue details

The IELTS test takes place in Kabul. The exact location of the venue will be communicated to candidates three days before the exam date.

For all applications and information requests, please contact the British Council Afghanistan directly.
