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.
