Default Current residence address

Hello, I have a small query.
I am an Indian student studying medicine in Ukraine, I want to give step one in December. While applying for the ECFMG identification number it asks for current residence address. Should I provide my current Ukrainian address or Indian address that is written in my passport? Moreover my parents live abroad so I won't be able to receive anything sent on my Indian address. Please let me know as I have been delaying my application.
thank you!

You can include the current address in Ukraine. ECFMG has to get all the exam applications from ur college and not from ur address so it does not really matter. The only time it would matter is when ur done with all steps ecfmg will send the ecfmg certificate by mail to the address in ur record. And depending on where u are located then u can change the address in oasis

Thank you for response As I am a total first timer with no one to guide me, I would also like to ask if there is anything at all before step 1 that ecfmg/usmle will send you to you residential address (forms/documents etc) ?

Nope. ECFMG only communicates with you by email. If your college is not part of online ecfmg web portal, all requests for verification are sent directly to the college. Only the ecfmg certificate in the end comes by postal mail.

Thanks for the solution. I have decided to write in my Indian address as it is present in my passport. Moreover I will be back in India after two years and only then will I give CS and step 3 (hope so!).
Thanks again!
