International Testing - CPA Examination - Public Accountancy

Applicants from other countries may apply for Maryland approval to take the Uniform CPA Examination as an international candidate. An international candidate may take the Uniform CPA Examination at test centers in Brazil, Bahrain, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, or the United Arab Emirates.

Anyone interested in becoming an international candidate through Maryland must first file an application and be approved by the Board to take the Uniform CPA Examination. Once approved, the applicant must register for examination sections through the Board's examination registration and receive a Notice to Schedule (NTS) before beginning the process to schedule to take the examination at an international test center.

Once an applicant receives the NTS, the applicant may make formal application to CPA Exam International.
