From 28 hours to 30 minutes, this is how fast applicants can now get their medical fitness exam results and be issued UAE residence visas. The usual process for those who want to get residence visas (for employment or as a dependent, etc.) is to get a medical test and then submit the result as you apply for the visa.
Before, the earliest time to get the result after the Dubai Health Authority gets a sample of your blood is around 1-2 days. But now, with this new Smart Salem Centre, you can get it in as quick as 30 minutes and now it also includes your UAE visa!
In an announcement made by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, on Thursday opened the Smart Salem Centre, a medical fitness and occupational screening facility.
