    Are you already in the US or outside the US? If you require a visa screen certificate then I would say go with CGFNS as they can use same documents for both otherwise can use either and I believe they both take the same amount of time approx 4 months

    Hi Trendy,did you later use Josef silny or CGFNS?,if u used Josef silny please how did the process go?

    Hi @ Favour, I did use Josef and it took me less than 1 mth. I sent to my school and that took 2 weeks to send my transcript to Josef. Josef took exactly 10 days for regular evaluation after they received the documents from my school

    Will processing on Josef have any issues if I have reciprocity of my license in the future to another state that only honors CGFNS in the process?

    Yes. Some states only accept CGFNS. If you apply for endorsement for a state that requires CGFNS for IENs you will have to pay and await CGFNS assessment

    Thanks for the reply JustBeachy. I am going through the CGFNS route then.
