New Visa For Healthcare Professionals
Updated on 13 January 2019

Currently, visiting doctors can only obtain a temporary visa in the free zone which is valid for three months and can be extended by and additional three months.

However the new visa allows global healthcare professionals to work in up to three clinical facilities at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), with a visa valid for two years. The professionals can also sponsor their families during their stint with DHCC.

Medical professionals can apply for the visa from abroad through the online portal, which will be approved once they obtain a 'letter of acceptance" from a clinical facility.
