United Arab Emirates Medical
Thinking of moving to The United Arab Emirates? Whether applying for a residency visa or a work permit, all visa applicants will require a thorough medical exam, along with a series of blood tests before being granted their visa. Unusually, these exams and tests must all take place upon arrival to the UAE in a Government Medical Facility. Failure of any single aspect of this exam, may result in immediate quarantine, deportation, and visa refusal.
Therefore, many UAE visa applicants prefer to undergo this test first at home – whether in full, or in part – before catching that 7 hour flight to Dubai! That way, there will be no nasty surprises when undergoing these tests in the UAE Government facility, and you can be sure of your impending passing of this medical exam. Like a trial-run or dress rehearsal, before the real medical upon arrival to the UAE.
What does the medical exam include?
- Physical exam
- Full Blood Count
- Random Blood Sugar
- Glycosylated Haemoglobin

We are able to perform these tests as a package, but we’re happy for UAE visa applicants to pick-and-choose which parts of this long list of tests they would like performing.
How long will the appointment take?
Our appointments are split into two.
- First appointment: you will need a 30-minute appointment to complete the lab tests. We will then need to refer you to a partner clinic for a chest x-ray and audiometry test.
