English language tests for visa purposes require attendance in person at an invigilated test centre. It is incumbent upon Secure English Language Test (SELT) providers to check the identity of individuals sitting their tests. The secure online verification process is the system delivered by the SELT test providers which the Home Office uses to check results relied on in support of an immigration application.
