Default Form 186

Hi

Based on my 3 time experiences of sending Form 186 for ECFMG, the story is like this:

After they receive the Form, will send an email to you saying that the form is received.
Then, usually after 3 weeks, they will send you another email saying that Form is approved by them or not.

I wish it could be helpful.

Many Regards

Default keep waiting!

wait!! thats the only solution. ECFMG takes lot of time for processing and updation. My transcripts were sent almost a couple of months back by my school, they still say not recieved. Your documents may take atleast 3-4 weeks. If after a month you see no change, try calling them.

Default Form 186

The fact is that it does not directly depend on when you send the package. It depends on the time they receive the package.

I did tracking for the package and 3-4 business days after tacking had told me the package is in destination, I got the email that they got it.

I think if you are really worried you can call them to see what is going on.

They usually take about 2-3 weeks. Mine took 2 weeks and my friend had to wait 3 weeks befoer they updated it. Considering that it's the holiday season i think they might take a little longer
