License Transfer from HAAD to DHA:

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), healthcare professionals have the opportunity to transfer their license from one authority to another within the country. This is particularly useful for professionals who wish to move from working in Abu Dhabi (under HAAD – Health Authority Abu Dhabi) to Dubai (under DHA – Dubai Health Authority) or vice versa. The process allows healthcare professionals to continue their practice in a different emirate without having to go through the entire licensing process again.

Documents Required for License Transfer:

Before initiating the license transfer process, ensure you have the following documents ready:

  1. Passport copy: A clear copy of your passport is required as part of the application process.
  2. Photograph with a white background: Provide a recent passport-sized photograph with a white background.
  3. Degree/Diploma certificate: Your original degree or diploma certificate, attested by the appropriate authorities, is essential for verification.
  4. Transcript or mark list: Submit a copy of your academic transcript or mark list reflecting your academic performance.
  5. High school or Higher secondary certificate: Provide a copy of your high school or higher secondary certificate as part of your educational qualifications.
  6. Home country license (Initial copy and renewed): Include copies of your home country license, both the initial one and the renewed version if applicable.
  7. HAAD License card: If you already possess a valid HAAD license, submit a copy of the license card.
  8. Experience certificates from HAAD facilities (not less than 6 months): Include experience certificates from healthcare facilities where you have worked under HAAD for a minimum of 6 months.
  9. Other experience certificates: If you have worked in healthcare facilities outside of HAAD, provide relevant experience certificates.
  10. NOC from the current facility if you are still working: If you are currently employed in a healthcare facility, obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the employer.
  11. Good standing certificate from HAAD: A good standing certificate issued by HAAD is necessary to ensure you have a clean record with no disciplinary actions.
  12. Basic Life Support (optional for some professionals): Depending on your profession, you may need to provide evidence of Basic Life Support (BLS) certification.
  13. Professional CV: Prepare a comprehensive CV highlighting your qualifications, work experience, and achievements.
  14. Old dataflow Report: If you have previously undergone dataflow verification, provide the old dataflow report from HAAD.

Procedure for License Transfer:

  1. Sign up for a DHA account: Start by creating an account on the DHA website.
  2. Check your eligibility: Before proceeding with the transfer, ensure that you meet all the eligibility requirements for DHA.
  3. Apply for Dataflow: Begin the dataflow verification process, during which your educational and professional credentials will be authenticated.
  4. Exam Exemption: If you have already passed relevant licensing exams, apply for exam exemption by providing the necessary documents.
  5. Submit the application: Once the dataflow verification is completed, submit your license transfer application along with all the required documents.
  6. Payment for DHA eligibility letter: Pay the required fees for obtaining the DHA eligibility letter.
  7. Receive DHA eligibility letter: After the application is processed, you will receive the DHA eligibility letter. This letter confirms your eligibility to practice in Dubai.
  8. Search for job and receive an offer: With the DHA eligibility letter, you can now search for a job opportunity in a DHA-licensed healthcare facility. If you receive an offer, the facility will initiate the process to transfer your license.

Note: It’s important to understand that if you have attempted the DHA exam in the past and failed, you may not be eligible for license transfer. In such cases, you will need to demonstrate your capability to pass the exam before proceeding with the transfer.

Transferring your license from HAAD to DHA can open up new career opportunities within the UAE, allowing you to continue your healthcare practice in a different emirate.
