The reason Im writing this forum is to help others to be cautious about there health especially when youre in visit visa.

A friend of mine have an asthma yesterday, but his on visit visa. We search for any cheap hospital or consoltation atleast but we cant find one. The cheapest is Rashid Hospital, its a government hospital in Dubai, but it will cost you around 200/-dhs consoltation plus medicine and if you require to stay in hospital it will sky rocket in the next morning.

However, if you have insurance you dont have to worry about, you dont need to pay expensive on your heath care. I hope Dubai will issue a decree that will provide just a basic insurance for travellers espicially if your in visit visa. I know it will add up to the expenses however it will protect you from any harm - and I know mostly are searching for job and working too on visit visa. Without insurance it will be a big headache by the concern person and you.

Hi Liezl,

I hope he's alright now. In this below information will help your friend to have insurance in the UAE while his on visit visa. Dubai already issue a decree Back in 2008 regarding health insurance for visit visa personnel, but I think many of us are not familiar.

Here it is:
The Visitor Health Travel Insurance not only protects your visiting friends and relatives, it is also mandatory as per the Ministerial Decision No. 322/2008

I'm not promoting this insurance company but as an example you can check there payment plan, its very affordable for only 100 dirhams you'll have your premium health insurance in the UAE.

Below is the link: Oman Insurance Company

I hope this information will help your friend and others too.
