The whole registration process in applying for a DHA, DOH or MOH licence can be very daunting. For someone who is not familiar with the rules and regulations in the UAE, searching through various websites is extremely time consuming. We take that burden away from you at a small cost. All you need to do is tell us your profession, complete basic details, provide us with the requested documentation, and we will do the rest.
Once you have registered on our site for the desired package, we will send you an email requesting you what you need to send us so we can proceed with the registration process. Once we have advised you of your eligibility based on the information you have provided to us, and you purchase the package, we can start the process.
Exemption for the exams is not guaranteed even if you do have the required certificates. Each case is assessed on a case by case scenario and the final decision for any exemption is decided by the examination committee. Documents would need to be submitted at the time of application.
NO. Experience is only counted if it is LICENSED experience.
It really depends on your profession, but generally the information required for all professions is more or less the same. For example, mandatory requirements would be:
PSV (Primary Source Verification) is the process of checking the educational background, training, experience as well as other credentials of all healthcare practitioners applying for registration and licensing in both the private and public healthcare sectors in the UAE. The company used to perform PSV is Data Flow, a third Party organization.
Good Standing Certificate is valid for 6 months only. For some countries like the UK, Good Standing is only valid for 3 months.
Good Standing Certificate is a certificate issued by the Medical Council / Regulatory body from where your previous license has been issued.
The GSC must confirm that:
This whole process once we have been given all the documentation, can take 8-10 weeks. It can take longer if more information is requested. Please note that when documents are verified by Data Flow, this is an independent company and verification can take up to 3 months. This is done independently from DHA and we have no control over this.
Once you have submitted all your documentation to us and the Data Flow has been completed, you will be advised to book your exam if required. You can still sit your exam while Data Flow is being conducted. Only once Data Flow has been completed and you have passed the exam can the license be issued.
For all the licenses, the package fees DO NOT include examination costs. This needs to be paid directly to the examination board when booking the exam.
These packages are designed where you can choose to apply for a license in 2 or more Emirates.
If you want to increase your chances of finding a job, it is advisable to apply for all the Emirates.
No, we will first apply for one of the licenses (either DHA, DOH or MOH, this will be decided on case by case). Once the data flow has been completed, we will then apply for the other Emirate.
We can, however the cost will double as we would effectively be submitting the same documents twice to Data Flow, and this will complicate matters within the authority. Once Data flow has been completed which is only required once, we will submit the Data Flow Report to the other authority and pay the transfer fees. This will save time and money.
If you have previously applied for a license with DHA, MOH or DOH, and you have already received your Data Flow report, then you would need to send us the Data Flow report. so we can check if there will be any reduction in cost.

Most of the questions are actual questions which students have given with worked answers. They are not actual past papers, but they are an excellent form of study material.
You can still do this as some hospitals do sponsor you in getting the licence. However, 9 out of 10 times, having the licence will increase your chances in finding a job.
