I will be in Dubai soon with my toddler and baby. My husband will be on a work visa but we will be initially on visit visas, which will eventually convert into family residency visas. But my question is, in the meanwhile if we need medical treatment or vaccinations what will be the procedure be? Please let me know.

Hi there

From what I understand, it is compulsory that all expats in Dubai must take out medical insurance for themselves and their dependents. This means that before moving to Dubai your family will probably need to have private health insurance, which should cover any medical emergencies or vaccinations while you're in the country. Have a look at our guide to healthcare in Dubai for more information about the options that are available to you.

Hope this helps!
