Postby dubaidave » 07 May 2009, 06:28

Hi,

I have to go for a medical before renewing my residence visa, however I am unable to get any details of the procedure and location.
I have heard there bis a big new facility at Muhaisnah but cant find any details of exacly where.
Also do I need a medical card first? In the poast I have always got a medical card from the typing place but have been told this has changed.

any help would be greatfully recieved.

Medical test Muhaisnah

Postby shawarma » 07 May 2009, 10:45

Hello dubaidave and welcome to the Dubai visa forums :).

There's a new DNRD office in the Arabian Center - the new mall that opened in Mizhar a couple of months back. The Arabian Center also has a medical center so is that perhaps the one you're thinking of?

There is a Dubai Health Authority in Al Khawaneej on Khawaneej Road. Tel +971-4-2892092 for more details. Or tel the Dubai Health Authority helpline 800-4991 toll-free in the UAE. The DHA website just says there's a new center "coming soon" for Muhaisnah.

The Dubai residence visa medical test is a blood test for HIV, hepatitis B & C, leprosy, syphilis, and a chest x-ray for TB (pulmonary tubercolosis). Cost is AED 210-300 (have seen different prices), or more if you want an express service.

Muhaisnah Medical Center

Postby shawarma » 07 May 2009, 10:57

Ok, there is a new medical center in Muhaisnah that opened in December 2008 :oops: . The largest one in Dubai, and has taken over medical services from Al Maktoum Hospital starting 11 January 2009. But I haven't found a location for it yet. This might be a tel number for them +971-4-5023939 (I didn't double check). If you phone the health authority and ask them, let us know what they say :).

Thanks for the info.
Tried calling them but no reply so will tray again after the weekend.Will let you know what I find out. I live near Safa park and someone said I could go to Safa clinic if I was a VIP but not sure what that means.

Do I need a medical card before I can have my bllod test?

Sorry to be a pain, I have lived here 14 years, but this is the first time I have done it myself.

Thanks Again

Medical card blood test

Postby shawarma » 09 May 2009, 10:08

No, the blood test / medical checkup is part of the residence visa process. After you're cleared, you get work permit and residence visa, and then you can apply for a new health card.

VIP means you pay more money, it gets done quicker, and the waiting room chairs are more comfortable :).

Dubai health clinics

Postby shawarma » 10 May 2009, 17:16

There are possibly some closer options. There was something in the news in August 2008 that said all Dubai Primary Health Care Centers could do the blood test. Of course, just because something is reported in a newspaper doesn't mean it's true. Here are closest clinics I could find.

Al Safa Health Clinic near Safa Park, behind Choithrams, tel +971-4-3943468 (VIP only?)
Umm Suqeim Medical Clinic, tel +971-43944456 (doesn't do blood tests?)
Nadd Al Sheba, tel +971-4-3363599 (doesn't do blood tests?)
Welcare Ambulatory Care Centre, Dubai Knowledge Village (only for KV employees?)

There are supposed to be new health centers in Muhaisnah (which you already know about), and maybe Al Barsha and Nad Al Hamar.

Great, look forward to that :). Um, good question, probably start a new topic - more useful for people to see the procedure at the start than after scrolling down a half dozen posts.

I heard that there is one near Karama?
