No. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority or FINRA, (previously the National Association of Securities Dealers), does not require a person to be a United States citizen to write the Series 63 exam.

If you are writing the exam without a sponsor, you must complete Form U-10. Exams can be written in various international locations, in addition to the basic testing centers located in the United States. For more information, click here.
