Australia

If you’re applying for an Australian visa, be sure to register for a TOEFL iBT test at a test center. The Australian government doesn’t currently accept any English-language tests that are taken at home, including the TOEFL iBT Home Edition. For applications to Australian universities and other institutions, please check with the institution directly about their requirements.
 

As an international student, you need a student visa to study in Australia. To obtain an Australian visa, you’ll need to demonstrate your English abilities to the Australian Department of Home Affairs . You can use your TOEFL iBT scores to do this! Just be sure to check the score requirements of the institutions where you’re applying — those requirements may be different than the student visa requirements.

For more information about getting your Australian visa, visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website .

You can also use your TOEFL iBT scores to apply for a variety of temporary and permanent visas, including skilled migration, post-study work, business, and work and holiday. For more information about skilled migration, including TOEFL iBT score requirements for professional bodies, read Australian Skilled Migration FAQs (PDF) visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website .

 

New Zealand

If you’re applying for a New Zealand visa, be sure to register for a TOEFL iBT test at a test center. The New Zealand government does not currently accept English-language tests that are taken at home, including the TOEFL iBT Home Edition. For applications to New Zealand universities and other institutions, please check with the institution directly about their requirements.
 

You can use your TOEFL iBT scores to prove English-language proficiency for university and college admission in New Zealand. Check with the institutions directly for their score requirements.

TOEFL iBT scores are also accepted for permanent skilled migration visas.  Visit the Immigration New Zealand website for more information.
