2. Health Authority of Abudhabi (HAAD) exam to be eligible to work in Abudhabi and Al Ain.

Experience Required: 2 Years post registration experience after BPT or 1 Year experience after MPT

What is a DHA Eligibility Letter?

It is a confirmation that you have passed your DHA Licensing exam and you are eligible to apply for a job within Dubai. So this letter is the confirmation and authorization that you can work in Dubai only. Clearing DHA exam is an eligibility Criteria and other factors such as Experience, Skills, Job availability, Strong Resume,Nationality, Visa norms etc play a major factor .

After clearing DHA, one needs to activate the DHA License with the eligibility letter. For this you have to upload following documents and pay the prescribed fee (Can be done only with a Job Offer):

-Labor Card or Job Offer Letter
-Malpractice Insurance Letter
-Fees informed by DHA

The DHA and HAAD License exams consists of two steps: Primary Source Verification (Data Flow Process) and the Online exam.

Step 1: Completing the Primary Source Verification (Data Flow Process): Uploading of Certificates which will be verified by Data Flow

Step 2:  With the Data Flow Reference number the License exams can be booked online.

The exam centres and available dates will be notified by the exam conducting authority after completion of the Data Flow Process.
Converting DHA License to HAAD License:
This step is quite important before you start the procedure to convert DHA License to HAAD. As you can't start your procedure just after passing your DHA Exam. First you have to obtain DHA License. 

As per the new regulations, A Physiotherapist has to activate the current license with the eligibility letter. For this a Physiotherapist has to upload following documents and pay a fees of 1010 AED.

-Labor Card or Job Offer Letter
-Malpractice Insurance Letter
-Fees 1010 AED

These documents are given by your company when you are selected for a job. Some companies in UAE have a different way to do it to make it easy for new employee. They ask for your login ID and password and they do the rest of the stuff for you.


When you get your DHA License which is posted by Zajeel mail on a address provided by you. Now you are ready to get your license convert to HAAD / MOH.

Note: DHA Eligibility Letter cannot be converted to HAAD License. Only after obtaining the DHA License , it can be converted to HAAD License

  1. Hi, the other day I was viewing the HAAD cite, it said there that they require 3 years of experience for BPT? Also, what if the country you are working in doesn't have a very strong and efficient licencing system?

    ReplyDelete
  2. 2 Years Post Registration Experience (Experience counted from the day of Registration with IAP or any State Council) is the eligibility criteria to apply for HAAD Data Flow

    ReplyDelete

  6. Please confirm as you are telling Converting DHA License to HAAD License:
    This step is quite important before you start the procedure to convert DHA License to HAAD. As you can't start your procedure just after passing your DHA Exam. First you have to be on a job with DHA License. Secondly, you should spend at least 6 months on the job in Dubai and fulfill the requirements needed for the transfer.

    but the rule is changed no need to work.it can be converted.Please confirm rule is changed.

  9. Hi,I have completed my MPTh and currently working since 6 months. I have my state council licence after my BPTh.. However our university have still not provided with MPTh degree to apply for licence. So in this case as you have mentioned 1year experience for MPTh, will it be valid in my case or my 1 year experience would be counted only after MPTh registration n licence..

    ReplyDelete
