Dubai has announced that all visitors to the emirate will be required to have mandatory health insurance.
As per recent reports, this mandatory health insurance plan will cover the costs of emergency medical treatment, hospitalisation, and repatriation to the visitor’s home country (if necessary).
This insurance plan will be a requirement for obtaining a visit visa to Dubai, and visitors will be required to provide proof of their insurance when entering the country.
The decision is expected to benefit visitors and the healthcare sector in Dubai, which has seen an increase in medical tourism in recent years. Medical tourism is the practice of travelling to another country to receive medical treatment, and Dubai has become a popular destination for medical tourists due to its world-class healthcare facilities and services.
The new policy will also help ensure that visitors don’t face financial difficulties in the event of an unexpected medical emergency, as the costs of medical treatment can be expensive.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has stated that it will work with insurance providers to ensure that visitors have access to affordable and comprehensive health insurance coverage. The DHA will also work with relevant government entities to implement the new policy effectively.
