Renew/Restore Professional Registration

Maintaining an active registration secures the approved position without the need for re-assessment (providing there is no discontinuity in practice), in addition to being listed in Dubai Medical Registry. The Registration can be renewed within three (3) months of its expiry date or within three (3) months post the cancellation of the professional license.

There are different types of renewal depending on the healthcare professional preference:

  1. Renew as provisional registration: This service is designed for healthcare professionals who do not plan to practice in Dubai for the time-being but would like to maintain their approved registration position.
  2. Renew / restore full registration: This service is designed for healthcare professionals planning to practice in Dubai by keeping their registration records updated with recent qualification(s), experience(s) and other required documents.
