U.S. CPA exam to be administered in Brazil

Starting this February, the Uniform CPA Examination will be offered in Brazil.

The U.S. CPA exam is administered internationally as a service to foreign nationals, as well as in response to increasing international demand for U.S. CPA licensure.

The international exam, which will be offered in English, is the same as the U.S. exam administered by the AICPA, NASBA and Prometric. Along with passing the exam, international CPA candidates must meet educational and experience requirements as mandated by U.S. state boards of accountancy.

Testing in Brazil will be open to citizens and long-term residents of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. U.S. citizens abroad are eligible to test at any location.
