Mail How long it takes the ECFMG to indicate the document as received in OASIS

How long it takes the ECFMG to indicate in OASIS that they received the documents from medical school after receiving it in the mail (as verified by the courier).

2 Weeks from the date of receipt by ECFMG. Your college sent it 2 weeks ago but when did it reach the ECFMG mail box? Did they use a carrier such as FedEx or DHL? If they did use a carrier then they can track the mail and see which date it reached the ECFMG, from that date, count 2-3 weeks, after that you should see in your OASIS account that it's received then after that count another 2 weeks before the ECFMG indicates whether they approved it or not

AAAAAAGGGGHHH!!!

I've been waiting for 4 weeks and it still hasnt been posted on OASIS that my medical credentials have been recieved.
My uni sent it by certified mail (even though I pleaded to them to use DHL and i would cover the costs) because they insisted that that's the way they have been doing it.
Should I be very worried right now???

No dont worry

The first time it took more than a month for mine to appear..from when it was received by them, so that was a total of around 6 weeks

And I sent it by DHL

Problem is my eligibility period begins next month.. I feel I need to send it again before deadline is over!! should I do that?

Depending on where you are, it should take around a week(3-4 working days) for most documents to reach ECFMG once they are posted (around 15th May)

Wait around 2-3 weeks for them to update their information,(around 7th June)
If this is your first exam, I would say give it another week before you contact them further.
You can then contact them by phone

Guys, guess what ?
After 10 weeks of waiting, they sent me a letter, mentioning that they haven't verified my credentials as it was sent by 3rd party.
What does it mean? It was sent through my college through Dean Office, don't know what exactly they want.
They have sent letter to my college again to send the verification, this is 3rd time they are sending, even if the college sends it this time, don't know how much time they will take to verify?
Same as before or less than that?

Did you get it stamped at the back (closing line of envelope) by the school officials?

I think it is verified sooner the second time around 4-6 weeks, mine took 3 weeks.

Also, colleges dont do it unless you tell them specifically to do it each time(atleast mine doesnt).

The college seal and the dean's signature have to be there inside(where neded) and also at the back of the envelope where the envelope closes. It has to be put there after sealing the envelope to make sure it was sent by the college.

Also college address has to be there at fron of envelope as the sender, not yours or some other random address.
