    Hi, if you don't have experience and you are planning to go to Dubai you cannot work in the hospital.The DOHMS liscencing department will give permission to take the liscencing with those who have at least 2 years hsopital experience. But if you will come here just work there will be a lots of job in clinic but most of the time they are requiring also with DOHMS.

    I am already here in Dubai.I have 6 years experience in OT. For me, it is very hard to find a job unless you have DOHMS liscence already. The private hospital requiring also DOHMS liscence and if you will process your own liscence it is very costly.

    The life here is very expensive.The public transport is very poor.The taxi is very limited and very expensive.The salary is not that much that can afford your daily needs.

    I will advice to all who wanted to come here should have a lot of money in their pocket and should secure a 2 years experience certificate...If I can apply already in DOHMS i will update you what will be their new requirements....
    Thanks for the information!=) As for my case mY brother(computer field) is also in Dubai now, he will support me in my finances there so this would make it easier for me to survive there.

    How much is the processing for DOHMS? If i will finace the processing of my own DOHMS license will they still require me to have a two year experience?


    Let me know if there are new updates regarding DOHMS licensing. Thanks again

    Hi I have the same problem now. I just passed my Calif NCLEX and I do not have a SSN so after processing my Visa Screen Certificate I will go to Dubai to work and get some experience.

    Im planning to go to Dubai to work as a clinic nurse since I do not have experience yet. Im willing to take the govt exams if needed. I will be in Dubai after the holiday season (w/visit Visa).

    Are you already working in Dubai now? Please give me some feedback about your job hunting experience there. And if there are agencies there where could I start processing my papers for US. It will help me a lot thanks!
    Goodluck for you...If you are willing to take the gov't exams and it is really needed you still need to provide a two years experience. That is really a requirements. Even if you wanted to work in a clinic they will still looking for DOHMS. If in case you found an employer during your 1 month stay in Dubai they also will look for this requirements so that they can apply you for DOHMS exam.If you cannot provide the DOHMS requirement they will not hire you.DOHMS are very strict to their requirements...

    So, come in Dubai so that you will see the beauty of the place..I hope you can find job in 1 month of your stay in Dubai. Otherwise you will be out of the country for 1 months before you can come in Dubai...

    Just refer to the message of chenxiam..that is true..

    Anyway, wish you luck..

    Hi!
    I read your concerns, and jaz wanna give you feedbacks. To come here in dubai entails alot of money and effort. I was here since September and been working overseas and in the Phils in a hospital set-up for more than five years prior my journey here in dubai, and yet it was still so difficult for me to land a nursing job in a hospital. Though you have all the experiences and all the credentials, you have to undergo series of strenous interviews, from the HR, nsg directress and medical director, you need to impress them to get a post in their hospital. I prefer not to work in a clinic bec they offer a salary insufficient to survive the high cost of living in dubai. Furthermore, you basically need at least 2yrs working experience before taking MOH/DOH licensure here, otherwise, there is no way to practice your profession here.
    To all the nurses, you have to think twice before spending much money for a tourist visa in dubai, you'll be pushed to your limits. Fortunately, I am on residence visa sponsored by my husband, otherwise, I also have to comply visa(tourist/visit) rules here. Goodluck nurses....:typing

    Hi, the processing fee is 1010++dirhams. But you have to complete their requirements of 2 yrs. experience certificate + copy of your school credentials with authentication of UAE embassy. Copy of your Registration Certification as a nurse.

    If you wanted to work in a clinic you need also DOHMS licence.

    If you will come on visit visa i don't think you can accomplish everything for 1 month. Visit visa nowadys here in UAE is very hard.

    Anyway, i am wishing you all the luck. There's no harm in trying. Good luck!

    I know a few swedish nurses who has been working in Dubai. They were nurses with many years of work experience (+15 years)and with specialist educations but yet they had to go through a series of tests,interviews,payments etc etc before they were hired.

    Question:
    Would 2 years of work experience as a company nurse for a private company satisfy the DOHMS/MOH requirement regarding the employment certificate?
    I would appreciate accurate answers and not guesses. Thanks guys.

    Why don't you contact the authorities in Dubai and get the answer directly?? People can only tell you what they have experienced.
