It is mandatory for couples to undergo a premarital health examination to screen for certain genetic and infectious diseases. The screening is available across primary healthcare centres. After the screening, the DHA provides the certificate electronically.

The move has cut down processes from 12 to just three.

Dr Suad Hashim, head of specialised clinics section & consultant family physician at DHA’s Primary Healthcare Sector, said: “The electronic transformation of premarital screening service greatly improves customer journey and satisfaction, saves the customer’s time and reduces any inconvenience. Customers and Dubai Courts will receive the electronic premarital screening certificate.”
