The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury currently restricts interactions between U.S. organizations and entities in certain countries/regions, including Crimea, Cuba, and Sudan. ECFMG has applied to OFAC for licenses for Crimea, Cuba, and Sudan that, if approved, would permit ECFMG’s activities related to verification of medical credentials and ECFMG Certification. Pending approval of these licenses, ECFMG cannot process certain service requests related to applicants and institutions from Crimea, Cuba, and Sudan.
We regret any inconvenience to our applicants and thank all of our clients for their patience and cooperation.
Please monitor this website. We look forward to posting updates as they become available.
