    I moved your post to the International Forum, which is the best place to ask questions about the process of obtaining US licensure. Good luck to you!

    You don't get a SSN until you arrive in the US to work. Since you don't have one, leave that blank on the form.

    Please take the time to do some reading here first. You do not select a state for licensure based on which is easiest and which is fastest, you decide first where you wish to work, and then proceed from there. If you are going to spend extra time to endorse to another state, then you have never saved any time, and with some states it is longer to endorse than to apply their in the first place.

    There is also a Primer at the top of the International Forum, I suggest that you read that before doing anything else, it will give you quite a bit of information that you need.

    I applied for my cvs way back in jan and up to now my report still hasnt been issued...i keep checking my status @ cgfns.org and it continually changes...one time it said the report is ready for submission then now it's in QA review...it will be 10 months in nov 16 and the bad thing is i've already paid for my exam @ pearson and it's expiring in july. Ive emailed cgfns several times now and all they could tell me is that my report is ready for printing and that was still last october...i wonder if it would have been the case if i took the cg exam

    If I were you I would call them and ask for a supervisor to sort things out. 10 months is a very long time, maybe there is a problem with the file.

    Rule 1: You never submit payment to Pearson-Vue until you know that the CVS ha been sent to NY.

    I suggest that you follow up with them by telephone. If it is in QA review, there was an issue with something that needed to be checked, at least in most cases.

    thanks for the response...the reason why i paid pearson was because cgfns emailed me and stated that the report will be done in 4-6 weeks. When i checked the site, it posted that my application status was ready for submission...i had extra money then so i decided to pay pearson
