Out of Country Testing

CompTIA's policy requires that candidates register to take their examination using an address within the country where they reside at the time of testing, and they must take the test within that same country. If you wish to take the exam in a country you are temporarily visiting, where you are neither a citizen nor a permanent resident, you are required to obtain prior approval from CompTIA.

To seek this approval, please submit the following information:

  • Full Name
  • Email
  • The country in which you wish to test
  • Country of Citizenship
  • Exam Name
  • Requested exam date or range

Please note that you should not register for the exam until you receive approval from the CompTIA Security Team.

If qualified, you will receive approval to the email you provided.

For questions related to IDs, please review the Candidate ID Policy.
