I've been a VE examiner for several years in a small town, meaning we typically give tests to 1 or 2 applicants at the most each session. We've always required ID which has always been a driver's license. Well a questions just came up. What if the applicant if from Bangladesh? First, is a foreign applicant allowed to take the test and become licensed? I've looked at the FCC website, ARRL website, and our VE manual. The best information so far is yes - maybe. Someone from Bangladesh - or anywhere can receive a license. If the person has a work permit, he/she is required to give their TIN in place of the SSN, and for all others, just write in FOREIGN in the SSN location on the NCVEC Form 605. Also, in our VE manual, if one doesn't have an ID like a driver's license or passport, a library card or utility bill, or maybe even a letter from your mother is okay?.

Any thoughts?
