Passport VISA for step 3

Hi all

I am planning on doing step 3 in Nov. I have some questions :
-When you apply for step 3, do they give you a visa letter as in CS ?
-If I don't get a visa to enter USA, can I have a refund for the fees?
-If my planned exam date is on Mid Nov, when should I apply?
-How long do you have to wait before you get the results? 3 weeks as in Step 1 and CK?
-and on other subject, how many questions are there in UW for step 3?

thank you all

No they don't give visa for step 3, because it's not a mandatory exam to become ECFMG certified, the visa officer will tell you, you don't need to do it.

Yes, they can refund you the money if you were unable to get visa.

Apply in August or September if you want to take it in Nov

Yes the results take 3 to 4 weeks

I don't know how many step 3 UW questions are there

Thank you for your reply

So what's the best option to get a visa ? I will be ECFMG certified by the end of august, and I am expecting some interviews, and I was hoping that registering for step 3 will help me get the visa I need to attend the interviews!
