BLOG: Validity of ICAO English
The ICAO English qualification is time-limited except Level 6.
In case of exams pursuant to the ICAO rules, it doesn't matter what language you took the exam in - whether it's Slovak, English, or Russian. ICAO language proficiency validity can be limited depending on language proficiency of applicants. In case an applicant has proficiency of a native speaker, the validity of their language qualification is unlimited.
The validity period also depends on the country requiring the exam (whether it is EASA region or just ICAO). It also depends on the type of profession (whether it is an exam for pilots, ATCs, or cabin crew).
If you are a holder of a license issued in accordance with EASA requirements, your language proficiency is valid in accordance with the EASA requlations.
Binding date of the validity expiration is the date endorsed in your license. Generally speaking, it is end of month in which you took the exam plus the number of years depending on your profession.
