On Wednesday, The Ministry of Health (MoH), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) signed an agreement for the unification of licenses for medical practitioners in the country.

“It’s a new step on the right path in order to unify the regulations, laws and procedures governing this noble human profession,” said Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.

The agreement is seen to enhance the employment chances of health practitioners in the country. This would standardize the aspects of medical services in public and private sectors, and would ensure a single format for  hiring, and salaries for each job.

“This is a good step and now a plenty of medical professionals will be available in the market as they can practice in any emirate with any of MoH/DHA/HAAD licenses,” investors told Arab News.

Sheikh Mohammed stressed that the UAE will always remain an oasis of cultural harmony and human generosity.

Surely, this will be a good news to Filipino nurses and other health professionals applying in the Emirates.

    It really a great news for us health practitioners. But our majkr concern is — Does it still need to do process of license conversions? Thank you.

  14. Therefore kung nagprometric exam ka para pa saudi.. Icoconsider na ng dubai , abu dhabi ang exam na un? Tama ba?

    pg dubai n thei,pra dghn nta..:)

  18. I am Nayana from India,I was passed dha exam .when this applicable in UAE.

  19. the report is not clear. is this MOH License from Saudi or MOH License from UAE??

  20. i have saudi moh licence ,still i have to clear any test in UAE ?

  21. nothing to be excited about… puro nkapending lahat mga dha and moh license of the hindrances is the service gap dahil ngseserve kayo sa ibang emirates…second karamihan ng facility hindi tumatanggap as sponsor because of problem no.1, 3rd super hirap ng exam kayo kokonti lang pumasa.. for me its better that offense..dahil sobrang hirap pinagdaanan namin at nkapakalupit ng exam…its very unfair dha at moh exam super sisiw lang tapos magpaconvert…yes, its really very very unfair..

    • Helu…hnd porket pumasa k ng haad.unfair agad ? Hnd b dpat matuwa k nlng kc nktulong dn un s iba n ng.nanais mgwork s abu dhabi.gnun tlg ugali ntin mga pilipino lagi iniisip sarili. at hnd nman included doon ung my history of haad exam failure.

  22. wag nmn bitter te….! hahahahaha

  23. Paano ndi babagsak eh sa title ng article dami n bagsak…npakaliwanag UAE unifies….tpos dami ngtatanong ng saudi license….brrrr….read and understand properly.

  24. The conversion is for UAE MOH – DHA – HAAD. If your did prometric exams other than those you need to take exam again to land a health care job in UAE. Sa narinig ko MOH license sa UAE ang pwde ma convert not MOH license of Saudi. You need to take another exam if your a saudi MOH license holder.

  25. why dont you go fuck yourself? go get a life.. selfish moron.

    How about ung mga medics s ambulance of dubai… wla naman lisence since 2005. Applicable ba ito…80 percent nurses s ambulance of dubai.

  27. they are just all easy exams kung dka imbecile luka….yes rain I agree, he should go f*ck himself.

  28. Some conditions will apply. Ofcourse, may tinatawag tayong exemption of the rule. Like for example, no FAILED record on HAAD. As of now, i dont know someone personally na naging successful ang convertion. Pinirmahan pa lang ni maktoum yung unification aggreement during arab health congress nung january2014. Not sure if implemented na talaga. These health licensing authorities are known for time to time changing policies.

  29. To those asking about saudi MOH, this not applies to you. Saudi is a different country. Therefore, different governing body. Fyi. :)

    Mabuti nga po yan..may isang agency dito sa pilipinas na nagpakuha ng moh exam for free,, fortunately nakapasa ang marami.. the only problem is mahirap magbayad at mahirap magupload ng mga requirements. sana may makatulong how to convert moh to haad or dha.. God bless

  31. does this mean na if my saudi ccouncil na pwd na pong iconvert into haad or dha?and we can work on dubai or abu dhabi?
