I have just been offered a job in Dubai and I’m excited to accept but have one thing I’m uncertain on... I am a cancer survivor, and as such take opioids to combat chronic pain. 

My question is this: will a doctor be able to prescribe me morphine/oxycodone tablets to take each day? And if so, will medical insurance cover it or will I have to pay (as I did when working in Mexico)?

Many thanks.
