Hi,.

If you use your US passport to create your ECFMG account, you will need an official letter from your university stating that "the name on your US passport and the name on your diploma belong to one and the same person".

If you use your other passport, then your fine.

Just make sure to be 100% happy with the decision you make as it will then be a little time consuming to have it changed.

The name on my passport does not exactly match the one on my diploma and I recently had to do what I have just explained.

Hope it helps
