Question Applying to step 3 before ECFMG certification

Hey guys,

I have a silly doubt, i know that we need to be ECFMG certified to take up step 3.
But, do we need to be ECFMG certified to just apply now and take up exams later ( after certification)
I need the confirmation letter for Visa purposes.

Thnx

You cannot apply before being certified because the FSMB checks your ECFMG status before accepting your application.
