Is it a new policy or previously known that unless one pays
.......one will not be able to access Form -186.......if u r registering for the first time....... coz a friend of mine, who registered last year, do not remember any thing like it. But now they are asking for it.
When i went thru the steps for ECFMG registration on the forum and The 2011 ECFMG booklet too, nothing like it is mentioned there (also none of my peers ever mentioned that), so I was very confused when I reached almost the end of the on-line application. Because i was able to access all the forms except the Form- 186.
I only came to know when i called ECFMG and got to know that.
I am posting this so that others may not get baffled by this.
