One of the main requirements for getting yourself registered as a Pharmacist in Saudi Arabia is 02 year Experience.
Experience may be of any field related to Pharmacy Profession.
i.e. Pharmaceutical Industry, Retail Pharmacy, Hospital, Sales etc...
Remember that never try to provide any experience letter that is not verifiable. Because Saudi Commission of Health Specialities other than attestations from relevant offices, will also get it verified from Data Flow .
So, In this post I am just covering the attestation aspect and InshaAllah in future I will cover the Data Flow Verification process.
Before attestation from the Foreign Office, all the experience letters should be first attested from the Concerned Chamber of Commerce & Industry (With which that organisation, from which you get experience, is registered) & than by the Ministry of National Regulations & Services-Islamabad. (Formerly Ministry of Health).
Attestation from Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
* Usually Sales & Industry experience letters are needed to get attested from Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
* For Attestation from Chamber of Commerce and Industry I recommend you to ask your organisation's office staff to do so for you , OR
Ask your Industry that with which Chamber you are registered and than proceed personally.
* If it is not possible for you to go to Chamber than skip this step and proceed for attestation from Ministry of National Regulations and Services and justify and explain them that it was not possible for you for the bla bla bla ...reason. (Usually they agree to you).
Attestation from Ministry of National Regulations & Services.
