I am not a resident of the United States, but would like to be qualified as a registered representative in the U.S. Is it still possible for me to write the Series 7 exam?

By Investopedia AAA
A:

Even if you are not a resident of the United States, you may be eligible to take an abbreviated form of the Series 7 exam. You will have to be registered with the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the United Kingdom or a securities regulatory agency in Canada, such as the Investment Dealers Association (IDA), and be in good standing with the regulatory authority with which you are registered. You would then be eligible for the following exams:



• For UK residents: Series 17
• For Canadian residents: Series 37 (with options) or Series 38 (without options)
