SCFHS and Licensing: What You Need to Know

The licensing process for healthcare professionals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is pretty straightforward. This is if everything – documents, email addresses, phone number, work experience – is in order. However, as we all know, not everything is perfect and some of you may have experienced some issues in licensing. We’ll try to break down the operators involved so that if there are any issues, you’ll know how to remedy it.

Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) Licensing

The SCFHS was established by a Royal Decree and is a Scientific Commission which has a legal personality. SCFHS is responsible for supervising and evaluating training programs as well as setting controls and standard for the practice of health professionals. This includes licensing for professionals, training, research, education of future health professionals, and even publications. It’s the umbrella organization for anything that relates to the health of the people. The SCFHS will be the ones evaluating an individual’s capacity to work in the health field.

Mumaris Plus

Mumaris Plus is the service within the SCFHS website where you create your login credentials. You create the username and password in order to obtain your Profile ID. You need to complete your profile on Mumaris Plus in order to get your professional classification. The Mumaris Plus application will guide you through the complete process. The input you provide (the information to be filled) varies for every one and the details you provide will be the basis for your professional classification.

SCFHS Licensing
Any issues? The key is Tawasul.


Tawasul is a service within the SCFHS website that aims to address any problems you might have when using their Mumaris Plus. I have frequently encountered questions like: My agency was the one who created my login credentials, what should I do? The answer is to get in touch with Tawasul. “I was in the middle of entering my personal information when my computer froze, and now, I can’t get logged in, what should I do?” Altogether now: Tawasul! For any questions, follow ups, technical support, or even suggestions, contact Tawasul.

Prometric and DataFlow

Prometric and DataFlow are two different companies. What they have in common is that you need to undergo the Prometric exam and the DataFlow verification if you are to have a healthcare professional license issued by SCFHS. If you’re having any issues with Prometric, you can either get in touch with Tawasul, or directly with Prometric. The same goes for DataFlow. What you can’t do is ask Prometric for a DataFlow issue or vice-versa.

  1. Dear sir, Assalamualaikum i m mustaqueem ansari about the pharmacy specialists the schedulling exam has passes plz reactivate this query

    1. Hello Mustaqueem Ansari, thanks for reaching out. This is not our primary focus, we focus on the verification of your documents-part if you would like to work abroad. For scheduling exams, you would have to clarify directly with the respective regulator.

      What we can help with is verify your documents, which is a requirement by most regulators in the GCC, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, the US, as well as the UK.

      Best regards team

  2. Can i obtain the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) Licensing if am in Cameroon or i must be resident Saudi Arabia

  3. Im trying to get a good standing cert from KSA but unfortunately, my agency are the ones who made my acct and didnt informed me about it, i learnerd about mumaris only from 2 days ago. I tried creating mumaris but i just learned that i shouldnt have done that. Now, its my 2nd day calling tawasul and they keep on saying that the system is down. I feel so hopeless.. Ive been praying to have an agent who’s willing to go a mile to help my case.. I feel so bad about my situation…is there any other way aside from mumaris site where i can get a good standing cert?

    1. Hello Yankim,

      Thanks for reaching out. A Good Standing Certificate can be procured from the authority which issued your license to practice. In countries where there are no licenses issued to practice, this document can be obtained from your most recent employer. Some regulators require that the GSC should have been issued within the last six months from the date of verification. Hope that helps.

  5. Good evening,
    I worked in Jeddah from 2015 to 2018 and now I’m an immigrant in the US. One of the requirements is the verification of license in your good office. Is it possible that I will send the form through email? I will just scan and attached the file? Thank you very much and

    1. Hi Felisa,

      Thanks for reaching out. The forms are uploaded online, yes, just scan and upload. Please go to, sign-up and select the appropriate package for you, e.g. the USD179.00 if you just want your license verified.

      Upload all required documents, the accompanying data, and conduct the payment after check-out. After 30 days you will receive your report which we will transfer to the appropriate regulator/authority for you.

      If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.

  6. hi good morning. is it possible if they can send me my certificate of good standing to my email address or directly to the ncnz? I paid already the fees and the ncnz required the Certificate to be directly sent to them by the saudi council or forwarded by me containing the address of the scfhs.

  7. I have a offer letter from a KSA hospital to work as a consultant in a subspeciality. Now I need the Saudi commission certificate. Do I need to give an exam or will they verify my subspeciality certificates which are from Belgium and Canada, and based on the offer letter give me the certificate? My undergrad is from east Europe.

  8. Hi, I’m a licensed RN in USA and I am planning on transferring state for practice. They want my Saudi license (and the rest of my licenses) verified before I can be issued a permanent license. How am I supposed to accomplish this? Thank you!

    1. Hi Eleanor,

      Thanks for reaching out. You can have your Saudi licenses and others verified by signing up with and purchasing either a Nurses’ verification bundle or a single document verification. This is the link to register:

    2. Hello, im currently working here in Jeddah as a Nurse. I took and passed my prometric exam – Nurse Specialist this May 12, 2019, my concern is about my surname, i want to make it correct as soon as possible because it was wrong. Is there a way to change my surname? Please help me. Thank you so much. Shukran Jazilan.

      1. Hi Rona Mae,

        Thanks for reaching out. On your question regarding your incorrect surname, if it is incorrect in DataFlow records, we can do something about that. If it is reflecting incorrectly with other organizations (SCFHS, Prometric), you would need to get in touch with them directly to get that corrected.

        To contact DataFlow, please create a ticket via this link: and a Customer Care associate will get in touch with you within 48 hours of the ticket creation.

        Best regards,

  17. Good day you. I received an email stating that my application was returned to me because of “unclear documents”. After logging in, Mumaris was asking to edit/reupload my Certificate of Employment which I am very sure that i already uploaded it and it is already verified by Dataflow. Mumaris is asking for another payment costing 900 SR or 12 thousand (very high price). Please kindly help me. Thank you.

    1. Hi Ralph,

      If your COE is already verified, you need to upload your DataFlow report. If you need clarification about your particular case, please chat with our agents using this link:

      Our agents are available from 6 AM to 6 PM Gulf Standard Time. Outside those hours you can raise a ticket.

      If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.

      Best regards

  20. Hai.
    i am currently working in a saudi MOH hospital and applied for UK NMC registration. On the second stage of my NMC registration process i have given my Saudi Good standing certificate along with the Nursing Registration Certificate.

  21. Hi there, I’m currently working in Saudi Arabia as staff nurse and recently I got an offer in singapore. I’m in the midst of submitting all the necessary documents to them. Singapore requires Saudi to send verification of my good standing certificate to them directly without the involvement of 3rd party. I have gone to the Saudi Council to request for it but no definite answer was given. Please advice how to request the verification in Tawasul website. Thank you in advance.
