Are you among those who are extremely busy and lack the time to undergo a medical test as part of your residency visa renewal process? Worry not. Expats residing in Dubai now have the option to complete their medical tests within the comfort of their homes. VFS Global and AMH have introduced the 'Medical Examination Doorstep service,' allowing expats with a UAE residence visa in Dubai to conduct their medical examinations without having to visit a designated medical center.

This 'Medical Examination Doorstep service' is offered as a premium service through VFS Global and is specifically designed for Category A visa holders who are looking to renew their residency visas. It serves as an optional addition to the standard medical examination services available at the centers. This collaboration is in line with the Emirates Health Services’ (EHS) vision to expand their services.

Customers can schedule their medical examination appointments directly from their homes or offices via an online or offline process. To utilize this service, visit the VFS Global website, navigate to the 'Medical Examination At Your Doorstep' link, complete a simple online form, and upload any necessary documents. Upon submission, you will receive an email confirmation with a payment link. After completing the payment, the VFS Global team will manage the application processing and ensure a smooth service delivery at your chosen location, whether it be your residence or office.

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with AMH to launch the Medical Examination Doorstep service. This initiative is perfectly aligned with VFS Global's dedication to delivering exceptional customer experiences and mirrors the EHS' vision for a more accessible and convenient healthcare system. We anticipate that this service will be highly beneficial for expat residents in Dubai and other emirates who are renewing their visas,” stated Atul Marwah, Chief Operating Officer for Medical Services and Special Projects at VFS Global.

Meanwhile, Buthaina A. Khoory, CEO at AMH, added: “We are excited to further our partnership with VFS Global through this innovative Medical Examination Doorstep service. This extension of our collaboration simplifies the medical examination process for expat visa holders, enabling them to fulfill this requirement conveniently from their homes or offices. This aligns with AMH's commitment to providing accessible and efficient healthcare solutions.” VFS Global operates two physical Medical Examination Centers for EHS, situated in Ibn Battuta Mall and Dragon Mart 2.
