Arrow Call Prometric

If you have received your scheduling permit then you have to call Prometric Center to arrange the change.
The Prometric phone number for UAE is this +31 320 239 530

There might or might not be fees associated with this change.

If you have not received your scheduling permit yet then you need to call ECFMG @ this number +1 215 386 5900
