Sorry i just saw your post. Been offline.
I see you a already got a response. I also noticed same mark. I believe all is in order.



ceyrahtlk:
I started my ECA sometimes last week and my documents have been scanned and uploaded to my dashboard.

However, the stamps/seals on the passport copy and certified identification form were marked with a orange-red ink of some sort.

Please for those who have gone past this stage, is this normal? I don't want to give myself unnecessary BP.

Hi, I have just been notified that my documentation is okay and has been sent to ECFMG. My question is will I get an update when ECFMG sends my documents to my school for verification? @Fatiah please help

No you won't get an update. This is the time you need to get in touch with your school so they can respond accordingly.

I don't know but once MCC has sent to ECFMG start contacting your school to know if it has been received

Hello, pls I am new to this Canada stuff,
But I have my medical degree verified already by ECFMG
Will I still pay the verification fee of 165 to mcc, is there a way that since my document have been verified I can be excluded from paying.

Anyway, we do not evaluate our credentials through WES. its done through mcc Canada. Check out their site for info. www.mcc.ca
Thus far, i have gathered the following info as regards an MBBS ECA.
1)open an account on www.physiciansapply.ca a $278 non-refundable fee is charged.
2)request for a source verification (svr) of your qualification on the physicians apply site (this is done through ECFMG). It costs $157.
3)Send mcc a copy of your mbbs degree and a cover letter (downloaded from your physicians apply account) via courier.
4)2-3 working days after receiving no. 3, ECFMG sends a request for a source verification of your degree to your school via regular mail (with a copy of your degree, a form to be filled and a pre-addressed envelope). If the school does not respond within 60 days, they will send another request to the school. At this point you can opt for a courier delivery to your school. They will only repeat this step 4 up to a maximum of 3 times.
5)ECFMG responds to your school and processes your verification within 20 working days and then you can proceed to step 6.
6)Request for an ECA from mcc. this would cost $102 and would take 21 working days to process.
7)Pay a courier fee for delivery of your ECA to Nigeria (about $140).
Note that step 2 may take as long as 100 days or more seeing as most Nigerian schools claim not to receive this mail. To speed up your process, you wanna keep tabs on your school right after ecfmg requests for a source verification and ensure they check their mail and then you pay for a courier delivery back to ecfmg.

I think you should contact mcc.
Since it has already been verified by ecfmg you most likely wouldn't need to verify it again. The might need some details from you so they can get a copy of the verified degree from ecfmg.
Contact them and see how it goes .

You still have to apply and send your documents to MCC. Once you pass that stage and your documents have been sent to ECFMG, you can then contact ECFMG. You will still pay the fees but the difference is that it will be faster at ECFMG end.

I didn't notarize mine or my husband's. Also had to resend my husband's certificate twice and i didn't notarize either.

Please see attached.


Thanks for Sharing this attached, I noticed it says you can send a copy of the certificate with a cover via email. Does that mean I don't need to mail it through DHL? can I send only the notarized passport via dhl?
Re: Step By Step Process For Evaluating Medical Degre For ECA Canadian Express Entry by bouqounmie(f): 8:35am On Jan 20
Sorry for the late response.
Yes, i guess. But if you're still going to send other documents through DHL, why not just send everything? It's still going to be the same price.
That option was given to me because the first one i sent was rejected.

Re: Step By Step Process For Evaluating Medical Degre For ECA Canadian Express Entry by alphabanks: 10:59am On Jan 22
People Good Morning, I am having difficulty finalizing my SVR process. First of all, when I started the SVR process what came out was SVR for Identity and Medical Degree. I ignored filling out the form for Identity and just completed that for the medical certificate. Now I am done and have been clicking on 'Finalize SVR' without it going through. Could it be that my not filling the SVR for identification is hindering the Finalization? Do we also have to verify Identity before doing that Medical degree?

Thanks in anticipation of your responses
Re: Step By Step Process For Evaluating Medical Degre For ECA Canadian Express Entry by loladius: 1:50pm On Jan 26
Hello @bouqoui,

My school has received the SVR dispatch from ECFMG, The school however insists that it only responds via email, which it has done. Will this be accept by ECFMG?

The people I have known so far have gone through MCC. Did you practise Medicine while in Nigeria? If so, I suggest you go via MCC. If you didn't and you also have a MPH or MBA, then evaluate that with WES or any other body instead since it is the same point you will get.
Re: Step By Step Process For Evaluating Medical Degre For ECA Canadian Express Entry by oyekeye: 9:57am On Jan 28
How can you defend your experience here after securing ITA, if you have been practicing as a physician? People tend to avoid MCC because of the financial obligations but hey, if your experience is built on your medical degree, please avoid complications and do the right thing. WES have already made a disclaimer already on their website. If you pay, they will collect it and refer you to MCC without refund.

We are saying the same thing sir/ma. Many physicians out there have MPH and they aren't practising medicine. Nothing stops them from doing their MPH assessment with WES.

I was also clear when I said if the person is claiming points for medical work, he/she should use MCC

This tread has been really helpful. Please can my documents be certified by a barrister or must it be notary public.
