[Update: 15/04/2021 PMC as of April 2021 has started online application portal and will no longer accept manual applications by mail, we have shared a new post containing the updates and procedure for online license renewal and online fee payment.

                                       How To apply for license renewal online at PMC

Visit the above-mentioned link for updated information]

The recent year has seen a tug of war between the Pakistan Medical & Dental Council (PM&DC) which used to regulate the medical licensing and the newly-setup Pakistan Medical Commission (P.M.C), aggressively advocated by the Federal govt. Despite the reservations of the medical fraternity and several legal hiccups the P.M.C was established via Constitutional ACT.



Although the current setup at P.M.C is interim till the board and its autonomous sections start working, the commission has taken over the job from PM&DC.


A whole lot of overhaul in medical licensing, education and policy is under consideration including the introduction of N.L.E, National Licensing exam on the footsteps of USMLE & UKMLE (to be introduced) and replacing licence renewal with revalidation.


Here we will talk about medical licence renewal:


According to P.M.C the licence renewal process will be changed to revalidation, i.e. instead of just applying and getting a renewed licence the medical practitioner will be reassessed for his professional knowledge & skills, how this will be done is yet to be seen but most likely will include reviewing the Continued Medical Education activities and credits.


The duration of licence has been reduced from the previous 5-year period to only 2 years. (Update: According to a recent update PMC is again extending the duration upto 5 years from next year on, till then only 2 years is being issued.


For renewal, applicant will have to download the updated form, from pmc.gov.pk/Forms , fill in basic bio data along with 2 pictures, copy of valid cnic and copy of the previous licence (original expired license is no more required).


Fee is Rs. 2000 per year for renewal, if there is any change in permanent address Rs. 2000 is charged, Late fee is charged at Rs. 2000 per month if renewal request sent after 30 days of expiry. Doctors can apply for renewal of forms 3 months prior to expiry in case of full license & 01 month after expiry date without any late fee surcharge.


For registration of postgraduate degree with Pakistan medical commission now a separate application form has to be used also available at pmc.gov.pk/Forms, details required are bio data, degree awarded with duration, mode of study & degree awarding institute details. Fee is Rs. 3000 for Pakistani qualification, Rs. 6000 for foreign qualification.


The fee can be submitted via bank draft/ pay order in favour of "Pakistan Medical Commission"or at designated bank counters in vicinity of PMC and the form sent by courier.


It should be noted that for those applicants graduated before September 2020NLE exam is not required for licence renewal.


According to Dr Taqi the current head of PMC they are working on making the entire process of licencing, good standing certificates and verification/credentialing online at their website.


N.B The rules & regulations are continuously being renewed/ revised by the commission for confirmation visit their website or contact them directly via contact details mentioned below. Meanwhile, we are continuously updating the procedures here as mentioned at PMC.
