Hi everyone! I am currently waiting for my CES (Credentials Evaluation Service) report from CGFNS so I can go ahead and apply for licensure here in Tx. CGFNS already received all the requirements except this VOL (Verification of License) from Saudi Arabia. Last March 29,2015, when I called SCFHS (Saudi Commission for Health Specialties) I was informed that they no longer process the VOL due to the large number of organizations outside KSA requesting them to fill up this forms. And that the Certificate of Good Standing which they currently issue via their website is valid and enough to verify the license. They also emailed me the announcement letter that says so. I called CGFNS the next day and informed them about it, I was told they are not aware of this matter and that they're going to investigate and see why SCFHS had stopped this process. So I waited, after a week I called them again and they responded that they are already aware of this problem and that they have people working on this matter and communicating with SCFHS. Until now they still tell me the same.
I stressed out the Certificate of Good Standing which CGFNS said they accept but it has to come directly from SCFHS. The problem now is when I called SCFHS, I was told that it is an automated process and that I have to register in their website, provide a valid email where they can send the certificate after payment. And that it is their only way to provide me the certificate as they don't and never send this certificates via a post mail. Now Im getting really sad about all this and don't know what to do next. Is anyone here in the same dilemma I'm in? I need help...

Hi guys! Sorry just now.. Alright, I'll send the announcement emailed to me by SCFHS to all of your emails..
P.S. Allnurses.com used to notify me via email once there are comments on my posts, I haven't received any so I thought I got no replies.. Do i need to check my settings? anyway, sorry guys for the delayed response..

Hi Edz86...I am having the same problem too with regards to my visa screen renewal.I have worked in KSA for 5 years and I need a validation of license from SCFHS wherein a good standing certificate from them would be enough for the license validation process.I already got a copy of the good standing certificate in pdf form which I paid 300sr thru my friend who is still working in KSA. Do we need to pay another 150 sr aside from the 300sr we paid in getting the certificate?Are you still in KSA?If you are already in the Philippines,how did you manage to pay the 150sr and can u please send me the account details of SCFHS in case I need to pay another 150sr again .Please...thanks a lot...God bless
