Default IELTS A1 Life Skills for spouse visa

Okay, I understand that the IELTS is valid for two years. Thinking of getting it done now. However, my spouse's passport expires in just over six months' time. We will submit our application for the spouse visa when the passport is renewed. This will mean that the ID passport for the IELTS and the ID passport for the actual visa application will be different. Will this present problems?

That doesn't matter. Your IELTS report certificate won't mention any passport details for anyone to cross-reference which passport you used to identify yourself at the point of taking the exam. All that matters is that you have a valid passport when taking the exam, and a valid passport when you submit your visa application. The two are not linked by passport number.

It could possibly do so. Better to renew the passport and then sit the exam.

Thanks, PhilFromTheFuture and BritInParis.

Surely PhilFromTheFuture's observation must be correct?

It occurs to me that when we submit the visa application and send documents we are going to send the new passport and old passport (for travel history etc) so presumably we could mention in a covering letter about the IELTS if this is considered to be a problem?

It won't be a problem.
