Default step 3 application

They are asking address of US or Canada in step 3 application but I don't live in US or Canada?
Please provide me some information regarding this issue that how can I proceed the form without having address of US or Canada?

I got an email in which it is mentioned that your ecfmg certificate has been handed over to the FedEx?
I will call them for the issue date if they don't update it today.

I got my CS result on June 18 and received the email on June 23.

I called them yesterday regarding ECFMG issue date and they told me that it will be updated on website tomorrow. So I hope I will come to know about it today.

Regarding US address in step 3 application, I called the FSMB and they told me just mention an address of a friend or any one you know in US. But we have to mention the US address in order to complete step 3 online application.
Guys, lets kill the step 3 exam too.


Good luck to everyone!

I am in the same boat as u, waiting for certificate issue date. Have u guys called to ask if july 18 is last date to start application or complete it?
ECFMG said it takes upto 10 days to issue certificate after verification.
I am really worried.

Finally the OASIS is showing my ECFMG certificate issue date.

I think, now it is possible for me to apply for step 3.

I made my ecfmg account in 2010.

Actually seats for exam are decreasing. There are almost no seats in July and they are decreasing in August too. So I hope we will be able to get our scheduling permit soon.
