Default ECFMG Certification: Time Lapsed after CK Result declared? Late September Applicant

I am really hoping for quick reply for this.

I shall be receiving my CK result on September 24. Provided that my medical school credential verification is complete;

1. How long AFTER the CK result is declared shall my status be updated to 'ECFMG certified'?

2. AFTER September 24, what would be the earliest date I can apply to programs as an ECFMG certified physician?

I would appreciate your replies. Thank you.

On the ecfmg website you will be certified in a day. If you have a US address you will get the certificate in 3 days , this is the best case scenario. Sometimes they take upto 10 days to send it.

Thank you for your reply Aman. Can I apply to programs just after getting my ECFMG certificate online or will I need to wait for the actual certificate?
