Doorstep Service: Dubai Expats Can Now Complete Medical Tests for Visa Renewal from Home

The initiative is in line with the Emirates Health Services' vision of expanding healthcare services

By: Pavitra Shetty

In a move set to revolutionise the residency visa renewal process for expatriates in Dubai, VFS Global and AMH have launched the 'Medical Examination Doorstep Service'. This innovative service allows expats with UAE residence visas to complete their medical exams without leaving the comfort of their homes.


Designed as a premium offering, the Medical Examination Doorstep Service is available through VFS Global, catering specifically to Category A visa holders. This optional add-on complements the standard medical examination services provided at designated centres.
This initiative is in line with the Emirates Health Services' (EHS) vision of expanding healthcare services. It offers a seamless experience for customers, who can book their medical examination appointments directly from their homes or offices through an online or offline process.
The launch of this service underscores VFS Global's commitment to enhancing customer experiences and aligns with EHS' goal of creating a more accessible and convenient healthcare system. Expats in Dubai and other emirates will likely find this service a valuable addition when renewing their visas.


The partnership between VFS Global and AMH also demonstrates a commitment to providing accessible and efficient healthcare solutions. By streamlining the medical examination process, expat visa holders can now conveniently complete this requirement from their homes or offices.
VFS Global operates two physical Medical Examination Centres for EHS, located in Ibn Battuta Mall and Dragon Mart 2, ensuring broad access to medical services across Dubai.


As a leading outsourcing and technology service specialist, VFS Global embraces technological innovation, including Generative AI, to support governments and diplomatic missions worldwide.

Operating 3,450 Application Centres in 151 countries, VFS Global has processed over 290 million applications since 2001 and more than 137.1 million biometric enrolments since 2007.


Headquartered in Zurich and Dubai, and backed by majority shareholder Blackstone, along with the Swiss-based Kuoni and Hugentobler Foundation and EQT, VFS Global is dedicated to creating value for all stakeholders. The company leads in providing responsible, innovative solutions to make government services more effective and efficient.


With extensive experience in the visa application processing domain and a vast global network, VFS Global offers governments administrative solutions for processing passport applications and efficient consular services. This market leader in outsourced visa and consular services helps governments streamline operations, accelerate decision-making, and improve customer satisfaction.
