    hey djos, its been a week since i have the status "ready for review" they already received all the documents needed...how long did you have the status "ready for review" before it changed to "certified"?

    'ready for review' showed only for one day and then the next day it said certified on their website,
    should be hopefully getting it in the mail today or Monday.

    Hi Binangkal,

    I think you should call CGFNS and tell them that you have sent your visa screen app. form along with the photo id form. And explain to them that if they received the app. form, the id form should be with your app. form as well.

    I had a problem too when I sent my application form and documents. I have waited for 10 days for CGFNS to send me an email or letter that they received my application but they did not so I called them up and explained to them exactly how I sent the application form and other documents. Then the lady told me that they did not receive anything from me but they will look for it. And to make the story short, if I haven,t called them up, maybe my application will not be processed until now and they will not do anything about it and I will still be waiting for their confirmation....thank you to silverdragon for advising me to call cgfns...and I did so they looked for it and finally processed everything.

    So I suggest that you call them to save you some time and also for them to know that you have some concern regarding your application. Hope this helps...

    anybody here who got issued a VISA Screen even without a local phil license? This question is for my cousin who is here in USA who has an actual US RN license, SSN and an F1 status but did not take the local exam after graduation because she moved here right away.

    Is local license a requirement in VSC?

    Local license is not a requirement for VSC but if on F1 status how is she planning on getting a work visa or immigrant visa? Be aware can not AOS at the moment

    Hi
    I dont know if this question was being asked before... I just want to know, what is the best step? Apply for visascreen first after passing nclex or find an employer first before filling for visascreen. I am confused about the steps? and what is the reason why?
