There is a process to becoming a judge. You have to be an ARBA member for at least 5 years. You must also become a registar (requirements for that too) and have registered a certain number of rabbits. After that are tests and you have to work under judges at shows.
There is more info here http://arba.net/judges.htm
People who do not live in the USA can become judges, I know there are some in Canada. However, I don't know about other countries, especially over seas.
You can try contacting ARBA and ask. Since there is a membership requirement, you would have time to find things out even if you were to join today.
