Dubai Health Authority introduces fast-track licensing service


The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has introduced a fast track licensing service for healthcare professionals to deliver the health license within five working days.

The department receives nearly 200 requests for health professional license and nearly 10 requests for health facility license on a daily basis. Under the new service, the VIP licensing department will provide health professionals with a seamless service, according to Dr Layla Al Marzouqi, director of Health Regulation at the DHA.

Healthcare professionals can contact the regulation department and a VIP service coordinator will schedule the mandatory online examination date as per the health professional’s convenience. Should the candidate not complete his online assessment, the candidate could reappear three times within three months of submitting the VIP service. DHA’s Health Regulation office is located in Deira.
