    Advertisements



    hey guys ... i need to write my step 3 before residency to get h1b visa. so i am waiting for my ecfmg certification to apply for step 3. i called them today and they said they had the verification of diploma from the school and it typically takes them 6 to 8 weeks to process a certificate. is this true? how long did it take for u guys to get the certificate. i mean i knew i will start residency maybe a month late but if it takes 8 weeks then i cant start for another three or four months.

    please let me know

    thanks

    ecfmg cert

    My ecfmg certificate took less than 2 weeks to be issued from the time I mailed out the application including copies of my diploma. Mind you, this was back in Jan which is probably a low traffic time for the ecfmg certificate.

    Are you talking about starting residency this year? As in a month or so?

    Have you registered for Step3 already? and booked your date? If so, won't it take a while for results to come back to you, and then processing time for your H1 visa?

    If you are planning on going J1 route, then you need to get a statement of need. Have you already gotten this? J1 process takes 4 weeks at least.


    My ecfmg certificate took about 7 weeks. I mailed out everything to ecfmg during first week of February and I got my ecfmg certificate end of March. But this was partly due to my school taking forever to send the forms back to ecfmg.
