Please note that all fees are non-refundable. Before submitting your registration, please double check your choices, as the test date and component selection will be final.
Registration must be completed online.
On the day of the test, you cannot participate in any extra evaluations other than the one(s) you originally registered for. No exceptions, under any circumstances, will be made.
Candidates must respect a 30-day wait period between two test registrations.
If this 30-day period is not respected, the registration will be cancelled.
Carefully check the data you enter in the online registration form as it will appear on the attestation.
All candidates must present themselves on the date of the test with the following documents:
- The registration form (download the registration form)
- Final confirmation of Enrollment/Registration (sent by e-mail approximately one week prior to the test date)
- A valid passport (CANDIDATES WITHOUT A VALID PASSPORT ARE NOT PERMITTED TO REGISTER)
- One photograph (35 mm x 45 mm format)
Please note that candidates without these documents will automatically be refused access to the test. No candidate will be admitted without all of the above documents, and the fees will NOT be reimbursed, given that it is the candidate’s responsibility to have all the required documents before arriving on site. No exceptions will be made.
The TEFAQ candidates will receive an email giving them access to their electronic attestation approximately six weeks after the test.
