The MoH and the MoI have partnered to issue a 'Good Conduct' certificate via e-mail
Director of the Special Contracts Department at the Ministry of Health Maryam Al-Shehab announced coordination with the Ministry of Interior for establishing electronic link between the two parties for the issuance of a “Good Conduct” certificate for the newly-recruited medical, technical and nursing staff members who were contracted from abroad, reports Al-Anba daily.
In a press statement, she indicated that this link aims to develop work, speed up completion, save time and effort, cancel the paper system, and adopt an “electronic fingerprint” to facilitate procedures for new contractors. Al-Shehab revealed about the creation of a website dedicated to the implementation of the “electronic fingerprint” mechanism for new appointees, in coordination with the Director of the General Department of Criminal Evidence Colonel Saadoun Al- Barghash.
She praised their efforts to overcome all obstacles in this regard. Al-Shehab explained that the previous system used to take time and effort, as it involved giving the contracting person an official letter issued by the Ministry of Health to give the General Department of Criminal Evidence for taking the person’s fingerprint and then providing the ministry with his criminal record, which should be clean, so that he can complete the contracting procedures and be granted government residency.
This used to take a lot of time and effort and required the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Interior to hesitate several times in order to complete the procedures. This step comes within the framework of the Ministry of Health’s direction to activate e-government and coordinate between state ministries and all competent authorities electronically. Regarding the local contract, Al-Shehab stressed that the “Good Conduct” certifi- cate can be obtained through the Sahel app without the need for any letters from the Ministry of Health.
