Dubai: Oman and Aman insurance companies have been selected by Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department to provide health insurance to visit visa seekers, it was announced at a meeting on Tuesday.

The UAE government revamped visa requirements, which came into effect on July 29, 2008.

Under the new regulations, visitors to the UAE are required to purchase health coverage as a condition of obtaining visit visas.

The department on Tuesday announced three types of health policies: Dh40 for a short-term visa of 30 days, Dh90 for 90 days, and Dh180 for multiple-entry visa valid for 185 days.

Residents of 34 countries, mainly those from Europe and North America, are exempt from this health insurance rule.
