CGFNS automatically stores an electronic version of all applicant documents for a period of four years from the date of the last order (five years for VisaScreen® applicants). After four years, all applicant documents are automatically deleted from the CGFNS system. eSAVED™ allows applicants to extend the storage life of their electronic documents, including transcripts, licenses, and more.


The primary benefit of using eSAVED™ is that it allows applicant documents to be securely stored with CGFNS so they can be used again without an applicant having to re-order the documents from primary sources. This is especially practical for saving academic transcripts and educational documents, which never expires or changes.

Stored documents can be forwarded to third parties using eDas™ for acceptance as primary source documents by nursing boards, licensing boards, immigration attorneys, and others.


eSAVED™ is only a system for securely storing documents for an extended period of time. For all CGFNS services, validation of licenses must be received no more than 3 years from service completion or an additional validation will be requested. Please note eSAVED does not guarantee additional information will not be required when you purchase an additional CGFNS Service.


eSAVED™ is available on an annual or 4-year renewable basis. Electronic images of the authenticated and verified documents will be managed and stored on a secure server in the United States by CGFNS International.
