PMP Payment

I have submitted my application last Monday and waiting on decision from PMI. I want to know when will PMI ask me to make exam payment.

I been reading lots of info on PMP payment :
1. One of my friend showed me email in Nov 2013 - he received from PMI that his application was approved and make payment to schedule Exam
2. I read somewhere else - you won't know PMI decision until you make exam payment (if it is approved or audit) :(

Can anyone please explain next steps after submitting application to PMI :
Case 1 : Approved by PMI without audit
Case 2 : Approved by PMI after audit

My company has agreed to pay for PMP Exam - only after I show approval letter from PMI. As per company policy I should charge exam fee on Corporate Credit card; if I charge on my personal card - they won't approve exam fee expense. :(

I am in catch - should I charge my corporate card or not. :roll:

1. You do get approval mail on your application before you make payment
2. once one make payment few get selected for audit...

This video should help.

Saket - Thank you for detailed video.

Any idea how much time it takes for PMI to issue final approval once audit docs reach PMI.
(assuming all audit docs are good; no further docs needed) :)

In most of the cases less than 24 hours after getting the docs at US office.

I think October target should be fair enough. :)
