IELTS Test Report Form (TRF)
The Test Report Form (TRF) will be printed and sent out by postal mail 13 days after the test day. You can collect your TRF at IELTS Official Test Centre when your results are released. You need to notify the test centre by email or phone prior to your collection and bring your passport you used to register for the test in order to pick up your TRF –no one may pick up your TRF on your behalf. Contact your IELTS Official Test Centre for more information. The test taker will receive ONE original Test Report Form. This is a very valuable document and it is recommended that you take care in keeping your TRF secure. Replacement TRFs cannot be issued. You will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), or United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) – in these cases, you can receive two. Proof of application to CIC and UKBA must be provided. Test Report Forms are valid for two years. Contact IELTS Official Test Centre for more information.
※Please note that JSAF is applicable to those who have taken IELTS at the test centre JP112 or JP114. Check the Centre Number on your TRF.

More than 5 TRFs are subject to an extra fee (1,200JPY for each TRF). These are sent directly to the Receiving Institutions you request. If you would like TRFs to be sent overseas using tracked service, please notify IELTS Official Test Centre by Email- you will be charged 3,000JPY or 5,000JPY for each TRF depending on a country.
