Due to the progressive implementation of emergency measures to combat the Coronavirus COVID-19 in different countries, we announce that:


- DELE calls for April and May are canceled in all countries.


We are studying to move the candidates of these calls to July and September and give more flexibility to the dates so that the candidates can take the exams once the situation is normalized. We will confirm it shortly.


 The situation is changing and therefore complicated, so surely other cancellations or changes will be added progressively, which we will communicate to you, but the entire team of the Cervantes Institute is working (from home to comply with the regulations) with full energy so that When this situation happens, the activity will resume and normalize as soon as possible.


Because we are studying these and other measures to be able to provide the service to the candidates and minimize the inconvenience of cancellations, we ask you for a little time and patience to try to manage different situations. Our objective is to try to ensure that the candidates can have an examination date already defined and from there, themselves in the case of Spain, they can change to other dates if they wish.


We confirm that any candidate affected by these special circumstances of mobility will have the right to a full refund of their registration if the solution of being transferred to another call did not suit them, or simply for personal reasons. We are serving them normally from our user service center-CAU ( but if they contact you, please refer them to this channel.
