 New TSA and FAA policies affecting foreign pilots training in the US were implemented after September 11, 2001. A letter of verification from the FAA is now required for pilots holding a US certificate based on their foreign and for pilots seeking a foreign license conversion.  This process takes 45-90 days and the letter is only valid for six months.  The verification letter can be emailed or faxed to the requested FSDO or to the training facility designated by the pilot. German pilots, please note that the letter of verification MUST verify your medical.  This also pertains to any country that does not verify the airman’s medical.  If the medical is not verified on the letter of verification, you must obtain an FAA medical prior to the ASES rating or license conversion.  Foreign pilots seeking the ASES rating must also meet the foreign pilot flight requirement hours.
