Visa Medical Screening is a mandatory requirement to obtain a residency visa in the UAE. It is applicable to all expatriates 18 years and older, intending to live or work in the UAE. To issue a new or renewed residency visa, the Federal Authority For Identity and Citizenship requires a Department of Health (DOH) certified Health Certificate from a licensed health screening facility, such as Capital Health Screening Centre.
