Welcome to Nursing Manthra. Below is the updated process for renewing DHA eligibility. If your DHA eligibility has expired and you are still searching for a job, or if you have resigned from a DHA facility and wish to return to the UAE to work under DHA, you must renew your eligibility letter.
As per the DHA exam validity, it is valid for 5 years. So, within this 5-year period, you are eligible to renew your eligibility. However, it is crucial to ensure that you do not have a 2-year experience gap. Check your dataflow report for the experience duration, and if there is a gap of more than 2 years, you will need to do additional dataflow for the experience before applying for eligibility.
You may watch our video explaining about the process :
Documents Required for DHA Re-eligibility:
- Passport copy
- Passport-size photo
- Higher secondary certificate
- Valid Basic Life Support certificate
- Dataflow report
- Home country license initial copy and renewed copy
- Good standing certificate (Valid one)
Please note that if you have worked under DHA in the past, while applying for eligibility, you must obtain a good standing certificate from DHA. The cost for this certificate is 520 AED.
For others who haven’t worked under DHA, you need to obtain a good standing certificate from the last work-related licensing council.
The validity of the good standing certificate is typically 6 months from the issue date, but some professions or councils might provide validity for 3 months. Please check the validity mentioned in the certificate.
