New Visa Rule for Employees to get a Dubai Visa

No one will be able to get a new residency visa, or renew an existing one, unless they have health insurance, under a new system being brought in.

Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said on Tuesday that the scheme aims to ensure that all employers and sponsors comply with rules that make it mandatory for every person in the emirate to have insurance.

The DHA said the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) will not issue a visa or renew an existing one if the individual concerned does not have health insurance coverage in place at the time of the application or renewal.
