Health Cards

The Dubai Health Authority issues a health card, which entitles any UAE resident to receive healthcare at a government hospital or clinic. The card costs Dhs.500 and can be applied for at Rashid, Latifa or Dubai hospitals; you will need your residence visa, Resident ID, two passport photos and an application form typed in Arabic. You can also apply online at dha.gov.ae. Even if you already have access to private health insurance, it is perhaps sensible to have a health card as well, as not all policies will cover you for certain treatments and it may be cheaper to go to a government hospital or clinic.
