UPDATE: After NASBA, the AICPA and Prometric announced Indian candidates could begin scheduling to take any U.S. CPA Exam section during the months of June and September 2020, we have received a number of inquiries. In response, we hosted a webinar to provide updated information. A recording of this webinar is available by clicking the button below. 

During this extraordinarily challenging time, we know you have many concerns — the health of your families and friends, your coworkers and your communities. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected all of us in ways we could not have imagined. Nearly overnight, the world has changed.

Amidst this disruption, we want to help alleviate one concern you may have — taking your U.S. CPA Examination. We know you have dedicated an incredible amount of time preparing for this next step in your professional development. We also recognize that current travel restrictions, test center closures and other factors make it difficult or impossible for you to take the U.S. CPA Examination as planned. So, to support you on your pathway to CPA licensure, and to maintain your health and safety, we will now administer the Exam in India at eight Prometric test centers (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, New Delhi and Trivandrum). We hope the convenience of taking the Exam in your country eases some of your burden while you think about your family, friends and colleagues.

Starting today, Indian candidates may schedule to take any U.S. CPA Exam section during the months of June and September 2020. We are hopeful Prometric’s test centers will be open by that time, and we will keep you informed of any developments. Here’s what this means for you.

In order to test in India, you must be or become an eligible CPA Examination candidate with citizenship or a long-term resident of the following countries:

  • India
  • Bhutan
  • Bangladesh
  • Myanmar
  • Maldives
  • Nepal
  • Sri Lanka
  • USA

Candidates testing at any international testing center must pay an examination administration fee before scheduling with Prometric. To do so, please log into your NASBA CPA Candidate Account portal and select “International Administration.” The international administration process for the India region is now available.

If you have already paid for the international administration process for another test region and wish to switch to India, please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

Jurisdiction ID
Exam Section
Exam Section ID
Current International Testing Country
New International Testing Country
