What is the difference between FRCS international and domestic FRCS with regard to working in the middle East?

A person who is having a FRCS domestic, that is, one who has cleared Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examination (JCIE) means that he has finished his whole surgical training in the UK. While a person who is having a FRCS International, that is, one who has cleared Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examination (JSCFE), he has completed his training in any other country like India, Bangladesh, Malaysia or Pakistan etc. So naturally more weightage will be given to the profile of a person who has completely trained in the UK and will obviously get more and better opportunities. A person with FRCS international will be preferred over a person who is just having his domestic specialist medical qualification.
