License verification in PRC

  1. I'm a licensed nurse in the UK and currently working in the UK. My license in the philippines has expired 3 years ago and I haven't renewed.
    My questions are?
    Do i have to renew it before they will verify my expired license?
    what are the requirements in renewing the license?
    Does CGFNS require a current license in order to have
    a VS certificate?( I have an active UK license) I have read the CGFNS handbook and there is no mention of whether your licenses should all be active.
    I hope you can help me

    if its the first time you will be submitting documents to CGFNS, then I think you need to renew your license... because its the PRC that will send info about your license to the CGFNS, so it needs to be current

    I submitted some documents when I took the CGFNS exam long time ago including my license verified by PRC. Will that count?

    1. create an online account at the CGFNS website...
    2. make sure you enter your CGFNS number...
    3. apply for the VISA SCREEN service online for faster processing
    4. all the data that was used in your CGFNS will be automatically forwarded and re-used in the VISA SCREEN application
    5. after VISA SCREEN application is finished, go and check your ORDER status and click for the VISA SCREEN, then press "GO"
    6. you will see all the required documents needed for the VS and their corresponding status whether received or not...
    7. ICHP will decide whether you need to redo your license validation just by looking at the status

    hope this one helps...

    by doing this, all the data that has been used will be re-used for your VS (unless ICHP notify you to redo a requirement - you can readily see this at your VS status after you have finished the VS application)

    Hmm... You need to have a 1 x 1 ID pic with name tag on it. I think its white background. THen authorization letter. I'm not sure if you still need the previous license or just proof.

    I think someone here can add up to the info given above.

    yes you can have someone to do it for yo provided that you make a authorization/third party. and when you verify for your VSC yes all the licenses are included fom the beginging.

    first you need to have an authorization letter to renew & claim your prc id.bring 2, passport size pictures w/ nametag.then your representative will have to fill up a form where it asks about info. about your prc ID like,license number,expiration,registration date, should also bring your expired Id.

    My brother's license has expired but he now needs license verification in the PRC. I would assume that he needs to renew it first, right? Does he still need the other requirements such as photocopy of license ID, passport size pictures even if he's outside the country and would authorize me to renew it for him?

    good day.. i am a cg passer of november 2008 soon to take ielts in march.. i was able to pass all the requirements needed by the cgfns including the request of validation of registration form. however, i have received a message from cgfns stated:

    please note that to date, cgfns has only received a portion of the documents needed to review your application for the cgfns certification program. we are unable to review your application documents to determine your eligibility for an upcoming cgfns qualifying exam until we receive the information listed below. please be advised that receipt of the documents listed below does not mean that you will be scheduled for a cgfns qualifying exam; it means only that an eligibility review will occur.

    the documents still outstanding are as follows:

    license validation form for philippines

    in order to begin a review of your file for a particular cgfns qualifying exam date, we need to receive the above-listed completion materials by the published application deadline date of that exam.

    should i apply for another license validation at prc? however, i'm getting confused because i just got a message from vt where i applied for the licensure exam they were asking for my credentials evaluation of education. is this the reason why cgfns is asking for my license validation again? what form should i give the prc to fill out? lastly, do i really have to pay cgfns for $328 to get my credentials evaluation of education as requested by vt?

    please help... thank you very much
