I cant understand the recent ECFMG news which mentions that international students in order to apply for their ecfmg examination has to apply for application for ecfmg certification. I cant understand, I used my ecfmg ID and filled most of the form , except for the payment portion, but no where in the application form its mentioned payment of $50 for the application , at the end they have just mentioned payment of examination that is 930$.
cant understand where to pay 50$ .

Is this the first time you apply? Do you have valid form 186 with them?

The $50 is only for recent first time applicants.

considering the fact that i had an ecfmg id 4 years back and using the same for paying finally now for step 1 for the first time... they are asking me to pay 50 bucks as the new rule...
so it doesnt depend on the fact of your early registration to ecfmg.... u have to pay it right away after 30th jan while u r completing online verification!
