How to Request a Good Standing Certificate from Sheryan
<p>This article is for healthcare professionals who have worked in the Emirate of Dubai as medical practitioners.&nbsp;</p> <p>Most organizations request a Good Standing Certificate (GSC) from The Dubai Health Authority instead of a Certificate of Good Standing from employers or fellowship associations. The good news is that getting your GSC from DHA is effortless, as the entire process is online via Sheryan.</p> <h2>What is Sheryan?</h2> <p><a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://services.dha.gov.ae/sheryan/wps/portal/home/!ut/p/z1/dYzLCsIwFES_JtvcS4Qi7qIL6wOCC2m9G0klpsWYlDQa8OsNuBL07GY4M0DQAnn9HKxOQ_DalXyi6iw29boWK1SqEhIPankUYiexAA0QUFHwDxJhC2Rd6D5v0nezuQWK5mqiifwRS92nNE4LhgxzztyGYJ3hl3Bn-GvShylB-23CePOvvWnkG6VKbK0!/dz/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/" target="_blank">Sheryan</a> is the <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.dha.gov.ae/en/AboutUs/Pages/AboutUs.aspx" target="_blank">Dubai Health Authority (DHA)</a>&#8216;s online health licensing system. Much like the <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/mumaris-plus-the-scfhs-portal-explained" target="_blank">Mumaris Plus</a> system in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sheryan helps healthcare professionals to get registered and licensed to practice in Dubai.&nbsp;</p> <h2>What is a Good Standing Certificate?</h2> <p>A Good Standing Certificate (GSC) differs from other certificates issued by fellowships and non-regulating organizations because it is issued by a regulatory body. Quoting the Dubai Health Authority’s (DHA) <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.dha.gov.ae/Documents/HRD/HEALTH%20LICENSING%20DEPARTMENT%20USER%20GUIDES.PDF" target="_blank">Sheryan User Guide</a>, a GSC is a “certificate showing evidence that the healthcare professional is competent to practice the profession, has not been found guilty of unprofessional conduct, and that there are no pending or previous disciplinary orders or criminal proceedings against the healthcare professional. Must be issued by the same licensing authority of the healthcare professional registration/ license.”</p> <h2>What are the requirements to get a GSC from Sheryan?</h2> <p>To get your GSC from Sheryan, you need to have an active DHA professional healthcare license for at least three months. You should not have any pending investigations, a revoked or suspended license, and there must be no derogatory records against your registration to practice. Any outstanding fines you may have must be paid before you can apply for a GSC from Sheryan online.</p> <p>In addition, you need to have an existing Sheryan username and password, and your passport details must be valid and updated on their system. If you are employed by a government healthcare facility, you also need to <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://services.dha.gov.ae/sheryan/wps/portal/home/services-professional/service-description?scode=GSC&amp;CATALOGUE_TYPE=PROFESSIONAL" target="_blank">submit your End of Service letter</a> with your online application.</p> <h2>DHA Video Tutorial</h2> <p>The DHA has a helpful video tutorial to guide you through the requisition process:</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed-youtube wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <iframe title="Request Good Standing Certificate | Sheryan System" width="580" height="326" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zmqxINQTcEo?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div></figure> <p>Your application will remain in draft form until your payment is made and received.
