With this, the DHA now has 17 medical fitness centres across the Emirate for issuing and renewing visas.
The centre is located in Central Mall, next to Sharaf DG Metro Station (Exit 4).
It is open from Sunday to Thursday from 7.30am to 2.30pm. Currently, the centre has a capacity to serve up to 500 patients per day.

For authorities to issue or renew a residency visa, expats have to undergo a medical test at approved centres.

“We have continuously prioritised and worked towards enhancing our medical fitness services. Over the last few years, we have adopted digital technologies, making it extremely convenient for community members.”
Al Bustani added that the DHA is following all Covid-19 precautionary measures at the centres.
