* Regarding statement of need
  njsl - 03/06/19 21:19
  I am not registered with the MCI nor the state med council (India). Will this be a problem to obtain the SON?
In the SON application form what do we have to mention at MCI regustration number if we are not registered with it?

  If you are intending for a J1, I would highly recommend you to do it now.
From my understanding, the SON is a bond for the permanent resident of India who is a registered practitioner whose services would be needed in India after their training abroad.

Or to avoid all this hassle H1 is an alternative option.

  You can find here :

I am not sure if i did it 7 yrs back, but when I searched my name it showed. Let me know if it shows for you.

If not : check this

Also, not all programs do sponsor H1 like mine and they are very particular to apply for J1. I think we can do waiver job to avoid HRR. Reg bond, I think pay 5 lakhs and u r not obliged to return back. Please advise.

  Yes, you are correct @Deepthi3.

If njsl does not have an MCI registration, I was suggesting him to do it now.
I am of the opinion is how would the GOI consider one for SON if he/she is not a registered practitioner?

So if u find the name, that means you are registered. ?

Also are u planning to apply for J1. I have 2 questions which I didn't find in the application. Can u advise?

1) Do we send any SON format to New Delhi ? or they have their own format.

2) also do we send any self addressed envelope or pre-paid envelope with ECFMG address? Or they send it to Indian address irrespective of if u send envelope

  Thank you docs for your replies, i emailed the MOH authority regarding the same and they rwplies back saying if I am not registered yet then I can attach undertaking doc stating I would register myself within 2 years of the current training for which I am using the SON. They sent me the proforma for that. If any1 in my boat i can share the copy of the proforma.
Thank you once again. Hope we all match Inshallah.
