I concur with pentazole. Additionally, note that your visa (H, L, etc) document must also explicitly state that you can prosecute patents in front of USPTO upon successful passing of he patent bar. My application for appeariing in the patent bar exam was initially rejected by USPTO as didn't state so. I had to amend my H1b for that purpose.

I was going over the application (almost ready! woohoo!) the other night, and read through the "aliens" section.
 
First, the application form asks whether or not the applicant is a permanent resident, so clearly, that's optional.
 
Second, in reading the documentation with the app, it looks like anyone who is not a permanent resident is not issued a registration number, but instead is only granted "limited recognition".
 
The information is in the "General Requirements Bulletin" for the 2003 paper exam.  I think it's on the USPTO website as "grb0403 (dot) pdf"

I was on an H-1 visa when I took the patent exam and was given a registration number.  It was conditional on maintaining valid visa status and remaining in the country.  When I obtained citizenship I just sent them a letter and they acknowledged it.  But that was in the 80s.
