Default CPA member for membership of ICAA

Hi all,
Merry Christmas!!
I am new to this forum and feel this is an excellent platform for sharing useful professional information.
I'm a current member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (CPA from Colorado State), ACCA affiliate and Certified Internal Auditor having around 2.5 years of public practice experience (Ernst n Young)and around 6 years of industry experience.
I would like to gain membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia before moving for permanent settlement to Australia. Based on my CPA membership, i understand i can claim exemptions and am only required to complete study hours in Australian Tax and Law subjects (Global Accounting Alliance)
However, I'm just concerned that my public practice experience is less than 3 years but then again i fall within the Global Accounting Alliance bodies

Please can someone clarify the above. I'll be grateful.

Many thanks

Wow, I am actually surprised ICAA has lax standards towards US CPAs (no residency requirement, accept a CPA license from any state).

There is a work experience requirement. CPA must have a practising licence, "certificate only" CPA (from states that have this concept) won't do.

The requirements for US CPAs to become Australian CA are more exacting than those for Chartered Accountants from Britain or New Zealand.

Still lax compared to Canada. CICA does not recognize licenses from non-substantially equivalent states (Colorado, Delaware, NH, California pathway 1) for reciprocity.
