Licensing process

Once you have an offer of employment, Professional Connections will instruct you on how to commence your licensing with SCFHS. The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS), is the body which governs the practice of all healthcare practitioners employed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Therefore all healthcare practitioners, including nurses, who are employed KFSH &RC are required to be registered with the SCFHS. 

Mumaris system and Prometric Exam: 

SCFHS provides a number of electronic services for health practitioners through the "Mumaris" e-portal. The health practitioner needs first to open a personal e-account with the portal to use the electronic services. Professional Connections will undertake this on your behalf.

Prometric exam for SCFHS

Prometric is a general exam in your profession. In our experience, Western trained nurses will not need to take the exam, but this has not always been the case.  The exam is taken online and is available in numerous centres worldwide. To pass you need to obtain a 40% pass mark. The exam fee depends on the location of the test centre.  DataflowThe fee is about USD 80. 

Dataflow:

Dataflow, is an international organization which verifies the qualifications of healthcare practitioners. It operates in alliance with the SCFHS, but it is not a part of SCFHS. All expatriate employees are required to have their qualifications verified by Dataflow. The dataflow process costs about SR 500. 

SCHS license Fees: 

SR 840 - Initial Registration

SR 50 - Temporary License

The final part is completed once you arrive at the hospital in Saudi Arabia.
