Form Notary Public Seal in Form 186

I have a few questions about form 186:

Notary Public Seal in Form 186-notary-public-seal.jpg
Click image to enlarge


Is that the place where the Notary Public must put the Stamp ?
All information that stamp contains is in native language (NOT in English) - what should I do ?
Do I have to translate the Stamp info ????

2) How should the Title of Notary Public look like? What should it contain?
And again - Do I have to translate the Title info ????

P.S.
I chose the variant - "School Official + Notary Public" for my Form 186.

Notarization must be English, you can't translate non-English notarization to English.
Find a notary public that can notarize in English.

Yes, the notary public seal should cover part of your photograph.

Yes, the notary public title must be in English too. Title means his/her designation (e.g Authorized notary public of the state of Alabama ..etc)

I found some useful threads for you here

Maybe I should choose the variant A ? What do you think ? Will it be enough for me ?
b/c in this case I won't need to complicate my life with notaries, officials etc...

P.S.
I'm a graduate from European medical school, so I'm pretty sure that my medical school does NOT participate in EMSWP.

Yes, definitely choose variant A, no need for the notary public headache.

Hey StepTaker,
so do you think that if I was offered the variant A - that means that ECFMG considers this variant applicable for my situation ?
bc as I see - most people choose: "Official + Medical school"


I'm sorry for so many questions, I'm simply running out of time and won't have a second chance if my "Form 186" will be rejected by ECFMG..

Here is what I also wanted to ask:

The name of my medical school in Diploma is for example: "XX XXXX"
The name of my medical school in IMED directory is longer: "XX XXXX + Faculty of medicine"
How should my school name be written in "Form 186" ??
As indicated in IMED directory OR as in my Diploma ? b/c actually the real name of my med school (i.e the name used always and everywhere) is the same as in my diploma and I don't know why they added "Faculty of medicine" in IMED directory..
