Initial CPA Exam Testing In Brazil Went So Well, The AICPA Has Opened It Up to All South Americans

As everyone knows by now, in February of 2012 the AICPA opened up the CPA exam to certain international locations, namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Japan, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates and Brazil. Presumably, this has been such a smashing success that the AICPA is looking to expand the empire.

Beginning July 1, 2013, CPA exam testing in Brazil will be opened up for all qualified citizens and permanent residents of South America. Previously, citizens and permanent residents of Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela could sit for the exam in Brazil (as well as Brazilians, duh).

The AICPA says it does not have a timetable for adding new international locations beyond the initial five at this point, so this might be the next best thing.

This little bit of news doesn't change anything else; international candidates must still meet the requirements of the state in which they are applying, they still test at the same time US-based candidates do and they probably can't chew gum at Prometric.
