Vaccination requirements

IDP IELTS Auckland

As per Government restrictions, from 3 December 2021, anyone entering the test venue will need to provide evidence of being fully vaccinated against Covid-19. If you have only had one dose of a vaccine, you will need to wait until you have received your second before entering the venue. The following document is the only acceptable evidence to provide access to the test venue:

Important information: Answers To All Your Questions


If you are unable to get the COVID-19 vaccine for medical reasons, there is an exemption process to get your My Vaccine Pass.

You will need to talk to your doctor and they will apply on your behalf. If your exemption is approved, you will see a record of this in My Covid Record and you will be able to request your pass from Saturday 4 December.

Please send your medical contraindication certificate to IDP IELTS Auckland. This must be approved by IDP IELTS Auckland prior to test day.
