TOEFL removed from Russia

A number of outlets reported last week that, along with citizens of North Korea, those from Russia and Belarus were being blocked from taking the online TOEFL exam run by ETS, quoting Mediazona as their source.

However, a visit to the ETS website seems to indicate that citizens from these countries can at least register to take the tests online and they are free to take the test in person if they can get themselves to another country. The statement on the ETS website reads:

“Beginning August 4, ETS is updating its March 2022 policy and will now allow test takers in Russia and Belarus to register for the TOEFL iBT Home Edition, TOEFL Essentials and at home GRE tests barring any financial restrictions they may encounter.

“Due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, students in Russia and Belarus remain unable to take these tests at a test center within these countries. Students who prefer to test in person are welcome to take an exam in other countries or regions barring any travel and financial restrictions they may encounter.”
