You don't need a permanent validation sticker

You don't need to apply for a permanent validation sticker. This permenant validation sticker has been created in 2004 because before the ECGMG certificate was having an expiration date and so people started to have licensing problems when they reached the expiration date.

Since the 2004 the new standard ECFMG certificate has no expiration date and nobody ever needs the permanent validation sticker.

To get your standard ECFMG certificate you need to pass USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2 CK, and USMLE Step 2 CS, and get your medical education credentials verified by the ECFMG.
