CFA Institute
Bring Valid ID on Exam Day


Every candidate must present a valid international travel passport during check-in on exam day. Please take a few moments right now to review your personal information, and make any necessary changes through Manage Account (login required). Name or date of birth updates must be made by submitting a Name Identification Change Form (pdf).

This is a good time to confirm that your valid international travel passport will not expire before your exam date.

For more details, review the CFA® Program Identification Policy.

Invalid forms of Identification: Passport cards, national identification cards, internal passports, limited travel documents, and passports that are clipped, hole-punched, or marked as cancelled are not valid forms of identification for the CFA Program.

Use the candidate checklist to help you keep track of important steps you must take before exam day.
