DHA launches medical tourism package for international medical tourists

 Friday, February 3, 2023 


An innovative medical tourism package targeting international patients has been launched by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) named ‘Dubai in One day’ at the Arab Health 2023.

The medical tourism package aims to allow international medical tourists to book procedures and access a wide range of tourism services within a few hours.

Mohamed Al Mheiri, DHA’s Director of Health Tourism Department, said, “We are participating to showcase our latest initiative, ‘Dubai in one day’ that promotes preventive health screenings that could be available in one day between two to six hours. The demographics of the people that we are trying to reach are from our neighbouring countries, aged between 25 and 50 years.”

Elucidating on the entailing costs for medical tourists Al Mheiri explained: “It is Dh800 for regular checkup, the executive price is Dh1,400, for the comprehensive checkup it’s Dh4,900 for males and Dh3,300 for females.”

He explained that the prices were selected based on other competing destinations.

“The idea is to draw home the fact that Dubai has similar services. We also have additional clinics, hospitals that provide one day services, whether it’s rented services, commodity services, everything that could be done in Dubai in one day. This will bolster the tourism ecosystem and develop the tourism industry.”

A patient can book services on the DHA website which will redirect a patient to the healthcare facility that provides the service, in addition to the one-day service.

“Whenever we say healthcare providers, the privacy part is quite crucial. That’s the reason for redirecting patients to the healthcare facilities,” he added.

The DHA also unveiled the new edition of the Dubai Investment guide which gives a sneak peek of a wide range of areas where the DHA will continue to expand and develop the health sector, with key focus areas of investment until 2025 and beyond.
