Default Changing test center region but available dates do not lie within eligibility period...need help please!

Hi guys,

Could anyone help me please?

I have already booked my exam with Prometric in the end of November in the region of South east Asia. My original triad is Sept-Oct-Nov. Now i want to change my test centre region to Middle east(Qatar).
Now, i have the following concerns:

How can i confirm the availability of the dates before applying for a change in test centre region?in order to see the suitability of the test dates are offered?what if they do not lie closely with the date i have already booked?..i dont want to get bound by the fact that i have changed the region and now i am not getting a decent available date. The local Prometric center in qatar has no idea about the availability of the dates.are there other options through which i can confirm? somebody told me that no dates were available until december in the test center that i now wish to change that event if so happens,

shall i have to extend my eligibilty period, or will my period be automatically extended? and if no date is available currently, but within the time that i process my requests of changing region as well as rescheduling my exam, a date does become available due to some candidate who has cancelled or whatever, but that date is not suitable for me, in that case will i be bound to take the exam on that date..lets say its a date earlier in November..when i actually wished to stretch my exam as far as possible,the reason why i chose the date close to the end of my eligibility period.

Please help.

Need to decide the suitable course i can ideally reschedule exam in prometric before my 31-day deadline ends..otherwise i will be charged extra
