Question Change of testing region


If I have put a US location for Step 1 in the ECFMG application process and later for some reason want to change it back to different location outside the US.

Is it Possible. Also I am first time applicant for step 1.

Yup it's possible.

You have to call them up, explain your situation and I guess they'll ask you to fax an application to them or something.

They'll change your location in a couple of weeks and send you your new scheduling permit.

You should check out the other threads on this same topic, just in case I'm forgetting an essential step.

Good luck!
