Office Closure During Eid al-Fitr

Due to the recent announcement from The Ministry of Human Resources that Eid al-Fitr will begin on the evening of Monday 3rd June; Doctor Expat would like to confirm that our offices will be closed from Monday 3rd June until Thursday 6th June (inclusive).

We are open as normal on Sunday 2nd June and reopening after the holiday on Sunday 9th June.

Any enquiries regarding recruitment, DHA Licensing, MOH Licensing, DHCC Licensing or HAAD Licensing will be dealt with promptly upon our return to the office.

On behalf of the entire Doctor Expat team we would like to wish you all the best for the holiday.

New 160 Bed Rehab Hospital Opens In Abu Dhabi

Another exciting day for healthcare in the UAE, as a new rehabilitation hospital has opened in Abu Dhabi.

The Specialised Rehabilitation Hospital will offer long-term rehabilitation as well as acute and post-acute care; which will include speech therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals wishing to work in this hospital would need to first obtain a Health Authority Abu Dhabi License (HAAD License).

Doctor Expat’s CEO Kaneez Nabijee discussed the new hospital: “It is wonderful to hear that yet another world class hospital will be opening in the UAE. This new facility will have hydrotherapy and virtual reality treatments – once again highlighting that the UAE remains on the cutting edge of medical technology.”

“If any Doctors, Therapists or Nurses are interesting in relocating to Abu Dhabi from abroad then their best course of action would be to obtain their HAAD License first. Without a HAAD License, many employers will not even consider your application. Once you have the license though, it becomes much simpler to relocate as you are then much more appealing to potential employers.”

For those who are keen to relocate to the UAE, Doctor Expat can help you to arrange your HAAD Professional License. Visit our

Ramadan Timings

The Dr Expat Team would like to announce the hours of operation during the Holy Month of Ramadan 2019.

During Ramadan our offices will be open Sunday to Thursday, 9:00am to 4pm. These hours of operation will come into effect as soon as the official announcement is made for the start of Ramadan, which may possibly be the 6th of May.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our valued clients and their family a joyous and blessed Ramadan.

New Office in Karachi

We’re delighted to announce that we now have an office in Karachi so that we can meet in person with Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals who want to relocate to live and work in the UAE and need to get their professional licensing in place.

This will give you the opportunity to meet with someone in person to discuss the job opportunities available to you, and to also talk about the types of UAE license you would be eligible for.
