Re: FPGEE for Philippine residents
I'm not too familiar with visas unfortunately, so I can't comment there.
Regarding the exams and process: FPGEE is given every April and November. To be eligible you have to pass the requirements of the ECE and NABP. ECE evaluates your transcripts and related documents. Once ECE oks you, they will inform NABP that you are eligible and NABP will give you a date to take the exam.
Upon passing the FPGEE, you will have to intern/volunteer as an intern at a pharmacy for 1500 documented hours. After which you will take the national and, depending on which state, the state law exam.
I graduated from USC May 2011, passed the Philippine board January 2012, passed the TOEFL June 2012, passed the FPGEE November 2012, interned, passed National and State exams August 2014. A 3 year process for me.
