    Suzanne is it true that if I go through visascreen then my IELTS expiration will be extended to up to 5 years more.and that my CGFNS exam that will no longer have an expiration?
    CGFNS exam does not have an expiration if the English requirement is met with it. One has a two year time limit to get both the CGFNS exam as well as the English requirements completed, that is where the expiration comes in.

    The IELTS expiration is separate from the VSC, the date of that exam must be current before one can get the VSC issued. Once it is issued, then the VSC is valid for a period of five years. And this can satisfy the requirment for the English for most things, but it does not actually increas the timeline of the IELTS passing and expiration.

    Once you have the VSC, then you meet the requirements for the US as far as English exam for immigration, but it needs to be renewed every five years until one actually has citizenship in the US.

    In order to renew the VSC, you will have to have a current IELTS exam.
    This is why we keep stating that it needs to be redone every five years, the timeframe for the VSC. This is needed for the US until one actually has citizenship.
