Doctor Expat Unveils New Pricing Structure

We are pleased to announce that after listening to feedback from Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals using our professional licensing packages; we have simplified our pricing structure.

We have streamlined the process so that we now have two types of fee: one for Physicians and one for Non-Physicians.

Once you have purchased one of our UAE Professional Licensing Packages we will assign you with a dedicated Licensing Administrator to process and oversee your application from start to finish. This will include paying your registrations fees, follow up with Data Flow, document submissions and exam booking assistance. We will guide you through the correct application process and ensure that all the required paperwork is completed and the correct fees have been paid.

Our goal is to get you through the application approval process in 6 to 8 weeks or even less! The only thing our fees do not include is the Exam Fee and the Data Flow fee, which is a third-party organisation that will verify all of your experience and education. However be rest assured our team will complete the entire application from A-Z, we will follow up with Data Flow on your behalf. You will simply be emailed a link to make the required payment directly to Data Flow and we will continue with the rest.

Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) Licensing Packages Now Available!

Doctor Expat are delighted to announce that we are now able to assist Doctors, Nurses, Allied Health and other medical professionals to obtain the necessary professional licensing to work in Saudi Arabia.

If you are a healthcare professional who is considering relocating to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to live and work, then you will need a certificate of professional classification and registration from Saudi Commission for Health Specialties
(SCFHS).

There are several criteria you need to meet and things that you need to do in order to register with the SCFHS, including passing the Saudi Medical License Exam (SMLE).

Our CEO Kaneez Nabijee discussed the addition of KSA Licensing to our range of packages: “I am absolutely thrilled to be able to offer assistance to Doctors and other healthcare professionals who wish to relocate to Saudi Arabia to take advantage of the opportunities there. With the Vision 2030 making Saudi Arabia an incredibly appealing place to live and work, many Doctors have approached us in the past and asked for help in getting SCFHS Licensing in place. The process for this is very similar to UAE Licensing, which we already have an expert knowledge of; so this seemed like a logical progression for our business.”

Doctor Expat has vast experience of helping Doctors and other healthcare professionals to get their Professional Licensing in place in an organised and orderly fashion. Relocating to another country can be a stressful process, so let us help to unburden you of that stress by dealing with the logistical side of getting everything ready to secure your KSA Professional Licensing.

New “Visiting Doctor’s License” Announced For Dubai

Huge news for Doctors who wish to come to practise in Dubai – the Dubai Healthcare City Authority has announced that it is introducing a new “Visiting Doctor’s licence” that will allow international doctors to come to the UAE to work in up to three clinical facilities within Dubai Healthcare City.

These licenses will also apply to dentists and CAM practitioners and will allow them to practise in Dubai Healthcare City for up two years.

Doctor Expat’s CEO Kaneez Nabijee commented on the move: “It is wonderful that Dubai Healthcare City are planning on introducing this new two year license for visiting doctors. With the number of healthcare facilities in Dubai growing – and medical tourism on the rise – it is crucial that we are attracting the best quality medical professionals to work here. This license will hopefully encourage even more Doctors to make the transition to working here in Dubai.”

With the new license, Doctors will be able to sponsor their families to join them in the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) free zone for the duration of their license’s validity.

Those who need help applying for their professional licensing can reach out the Doctor Expat, as our team of experts can help guide you through the licensing process. Visit our packages page to find out more.

Does Your New Year’s Resolution Seem Like A Distant Memory?

Now that we’re in March, any New Year’s Resolutions that were made at the start of the year may seem like a distant memory. Sometimes life just happens and your resolutions get put on the back burner.

However, if your resolution was to find a new job in the UAE this year, then there is still plenty of time. Doctor Expat helps hundreds of Doctors, Nurses, Dentists and other Healthcare Professionals to secure new jobs across the UAE, as well as assisting them with DHA Licensing, HAAD Licensing, MOH Licensing and DHCC Licensing.

Doctor Expat’s CEO Kaneez Nabijee explained: “We talk to Doctors and other healthcare staff every day and one of the key questions we frequently get asked is whether you need a license in order to find a job. Because the UAE is a popular destination for medical professionals to come and work in, it means that clients can be picky with who they recruit. Sometimes the process to get the relevant UAE license in place can take months, so clients will always favour applicants who already hold the relevant UAE Professional License.”

This is one of the reasons that we recommend our candidates get their license(s) in place before starting to look for a job. In many ways, if you want to relocate to live and work in the UAE then you should view getting your UAE Professional License as the crucial “first step” on your journey.

Doctor Expat’s Primary Assessment Package is the ideal starting point for your journey. This package has been developed for Doctors and Healthcare professionals who are keen to relocate to the UAE but are not sure which licenses they are eligible for. Our expert team will fully assess all of your documentation and will confirm whether you are eligible for Dubai Health Authority Licensing, Health Authority of Abu Dhabi Licensing, Dubai Healthcare City Licensing or Ministry of Health Licensing. As an added incentive to put your New Year’s Resolution back on track, we’re offering an incredible 40% off of the Primary Assessment Package in March – meaning it costs only $60!
