Following local health authority and government guidance, we have taken steps to reopen select test centres in the Emirate of Dubai from 06 June 2020. The health and safety of test takers and test staff is our number one priority and we have taken the time to put in place all precautions to ensure our customers can test confidently at our test venues. 

In line with government directives and Covid-19 regulation, testing has been suspended until at least 17 July 2020 in:

  • Abu Dhabi and Al Ain
  • Sharjah
  •  Ajman
  • Ras Al Khaimah
  • Fujairah
  • Umm Al Quwain

We have opened booking for future test dates from 18 July 2020 onwards. We will restart testing as soon as the local regulations allow. For further updates, click here
