Some UAE public health centres will stop offering medical fitness tests for residence visa applications starting June 3, authorities said.

The Emirates Health Services (EHC) recently confirmed the closure, stressing that the service will remain accessible in other centres.


Here are the four health centres that will no longer conduct medical fitness tests for visas:

  • Ajman Public Health Centre
  • Ras Al Khaimah Public Health Centre
  • Umm Al Quwain Public Health Centre
  • Fujairah Public Health Centre

All expats who are applying for residence visas have to undergo medical fitness tests. A report confirming that one is "medically fit" is necessary for the application to be approved. (Click here for a quick guide to the process, including the fees involved.)
