Dubai Naturalization and Residency Department (DNRD) says that all online visa applicants through its portal www.ednrd.ae will be automatically prompted to use Aman and Oman Health Insurance services available 24/7, from Sunday October 12. Applicants will have to enter the necessary information as indicated when they file their application online and will automatically receive the health insurance cover related to the type of visa they are applying for.
Health insurance cover is one of the mandatory requirements to enter the country. DNRD had two memoranda of understanding with Aman Insurance Company and Oman Insurance Company to offer easy access to the health insurance providers within the DNRD premises, as a value-added service for all applicants. The two companies will now extend their services to offer health insurance policies associated with all online visas.
On the other hand, applicants who file their applications in person through the typing centers at the DNRD headquarters and external centers, reserve the right to select the insurance company of their choice as long as they are in line with the terms and framework of the health insurance policies previously declared by the Department.
