Hey everyone,

I am an Indian citizen and a Foreign Medical Graduate having graduated from American University of Caribbean, school of medicine and I have matched into an IM Residency program. For processing the J1 physician visa ECFMG requires Statement of Need to be issued by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, New Delhi.

The application for Statement of Need and the surety bond is asking me for a MCI registration number, as I did not do my medical education in India, what do I put down for that.

Thanks

I think you can check with American immigration for that.

Also, just curious, are you an Indian citizen in the US and then went to AUC? Or did you go to AUC from India? That must've been very expensive no?
