I would doubt it, you'd have to still purchase a CD key

Agent Kervin: Hello, , thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX Customer Support. Just a few moments while I review your question, please.
Customer: hi
Agent Kervin: You can check if you have the full version of Final Fantasy XIV, by logging into the Square Enix Management system.
Customer: Yes, I did check but I am unsure if it's full
Agent Kervin: On the left hand menu, click "Select Service"
Customer: The reason why I am wondering is because I used a guest pass from the collector's edition
Agent Kervin: Select FINAL FANTASY XIV. Then check under "Active Service Accounts"
Agent Kervin: If you see FINAL FANTASY XIV there that means you have registered your copy of the game.
Customer: it says FINAL FANTASY XIV - Windows(R)
Customer: so even though it's a guest pass, I have no need to buy the game?
Agent Kervin: If you have used the buddy pass, then it will expire within 30 days.
Agent Kervin: And you will need to purchase the game and attach it to the service account to make it a full version.
Customer: is there anywhere that shows that?
Agent Kervin: Under Services and Options, and click "Select Service"
Agent Kervin: Are there any other issues I can assist you with right now, ?
Customer: Yes, I don't see anywhere under the service area that shows it expiring in 30 days
Customer: or any indication that it isn't full
Agent Kervin: Click on "Options List"
Customer: ok
Agent Kervin: It should show more detailed information there
Customer: it just says FINAL FANTASY XIV - Windows(R) under permanent options
Customer: that's why it's confusing
Agent Kervin: Hold one moment please.
Customer: okay
Agent Kervin: I believe the permanent options are registration codes that are used on the service account.
Customer: So is there any way to distinguish between the buddy pass and the full version?
Customer: Or are they the same thing?
Agent Kervin: It may say the same thing if it is a buddy pass or full version.
Agent Kervin: But if you have used the buddy pass on that account, it will expire after 30 days are require a retail registration code in order to continue playing it.
Agent Kervin: I do apologize that their aren't any indicators letting you know its a buddy pass or not.
Customer: Okay, thanks for your time
Agent Kervin: Are there any other issues I can assist you with right now, ?
Customer: nope
Agent Kervin: Thank you for visiting the SQUARE ENIX Support Center, ! Take care and hope to see you online!

That wasn't very re-assuring. :/
