    Red face Can I use a California Real Estate License to work in Real Estate in Hongkong

    I have a Real Estate License in California. Can I work at Century 21 doing real estate transactions in Hongkong ? How do I transfer my US license to Hongkong?

    Do I need to take a new examination in Hongkong?

    Thanks

    If you only sell property in California in Hong Kong then you are exempt. Otherwise you have to take an exam.

    EAA Licensing

    Below is a link to the syllabus. You will note that there are a fair few references about the laws in Hong Kong; this is one reason why you cannot "transfer" your US licence.
