Basically-yes.

Unless there are agreements in place that allow you to do otherwise..

FAA-regulations allow you to fly an N-Reg if you hold a license and rating if the country this aircraft is operating in..


§61.3 Requirement for certificates, ratings, and authorizations.
(a) Required pilot certificate for operating a civil aircraft of the United States. No person may serve as a required pilot flight crewmember of a civil aircraft of the United States, unless that person:

(1) Has in the person's physical possession or readily accessible in the aircraft when exercising the privileges of that pilot certificate or authorization—

(i) A pilot certificate issued under this part and in accordance with §61.19;

(ii) A special purpose pilot authorization issued under §61.77;

(iii) A temporary certificate issued under §61.17;

(iv) A document conveying temporary authority to exercise certificate privileges issued by the Airmen Certification Branch under §61.29(e); or

(v) When operating an aircraft within a foreign country, a pilot license issued by that country may be used.

I'll simplify even more: you need either an FAA certificate OR a licence issued by country you're flying in.

In Saudi Arabia we were flying N-registered helicopters and we needed FAA pilot licenses to do so. No exception.

Saudi uses the FAA system rather than having one of its own.....as I recall.
