To support Exam candidates on their pathway to CPA licensure, and to prioritize their health and safety, NASBA will now temporarily administer the CPA Exam in the Republic of Korea and allow other countries in Asia to test in the Republic of Korea, as well as Japan.
Qualified candidates may begin scheduling to take any U.S. CPA Exam section from October 1, 2020, through March 31, 2021, in Japan or the Republic of Korea. Candidates, if they choose, may also continue to schedule at the Guam Prometric Test Center. All candidates who have paid a Guam surcharge have received a separate communication regarding the process of switching to an international testing location.
To test in Japan or the Republic of Korea, you must be an eligible CPA Examination candidate with valid citizenship or long-term residency in one of the following countries, territories and areas:
- Hong Kong
- Republic of Korea
- Republic of Singapore
- Republic of the Philippines
- United States of America
Candidates testing at international testing centers 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.”
