The CFA exams are administered in over 180 cities in June and over 60 cities in December at testing facilities around the world.
When you register for an exam you request an exam location, typically a major city (e.g., Melbourne, Australia) or a major metropolitan area (e.g., Beijing, China). We make every effort to accommodate your request.
Your test center assignment will be indicated on your exam admission ticket (available approximately four weeks prior to the exam date).

If you need a visa to travel to a distant test center, remember to make arrangements well in advance. It is your responsibility to secure any necessary travel documents.
