It's certainly the next best thing to being able to sit for the exam in India:
The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and Prometric today announced that testing for the Uniform CPA Examination in the Middle East will be open to all qualified citizens and permanent residents of India beginning October 1, 2014.
Administration of the Uniform CPA Examination began in the Middle East in August of 2011, with testing available in Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. Qualified candidates from India now are able to travel to take the Exam at any of the Middle East locations.
CPA Exam candidates can register on Prometric.com/cpa and conduct their exams at Prometric test sites throughout the Middle East.
The U.S. CPA Exam is administered internationally as a service to U.S. citizens living abroad and foreign nationals, as well as in response to the escalating international demand for the U.S. CPA license. In recent years, Indian candidates are among the largest groups of international candidates who have traveled to the U.S. to take the CPA Exam. Opening the CPA Exam in the Middle East to Indian candidates increases their testing options.
