Dubai has a centrally located among many nations and is within a few hours by flight from Europe, Africa and South Asia. This has helped in making Dubai a city with many expatriates, international tourists and travelers.

The number of travelers from Dubai traveling to the USA and to Europe has increased dramatically. This has been made easy thanks to direct flights to many large US and European cities from Dubai and Abu Dhabi mainly by Emirates and Etihad airlines. While we have US expatriates traveling back to Europe and the US for short visits, quite often it is also other nationalities who are Dubai residents who travel overseas for work and for leisure.

Importance of visitor medical insurance while visiting UAE

This is a unfortunate but real incident that happened on 15th March 2019.
Source: https://www.khaleejtimes.com/nation/dubai/indian-visitors-hospital-bill-in-dubai-crosses-dh100000-

An elderly traveler was visiting his family in the UAE in March 2019. Unfortunately he suffered from acute breathlessness which was a result of severe lung infection. The traveler had to be hospitalized, and the infection resulted in multiple organ failure. The travelers medical treatment involved antibiotics and several tests and diagnosis. In a country like UAE, the healthcare is good but is also expensive, and this treatment resulted in a bill that crossed UAE Dirhams 100,000. The traveler and his family lost all that they had saved, for paying his large bills. Sadly he was unaware of the importance of travel health insurance. The family was forced to borrow money from friends and relatives and even had to take advance salary from his employer to pay these bills. The elderly traveler and his family thought that were healthy and nothing would happen to them while travelling, and totally ignored international travel health insurance. Most travelers while planning their vacation or an international trip just buy the airline tickets, make other hotel and travel reservations but neglect buying international travel health insurance, unfortunately this is very important especially for parents and senior citizens. As most domestic health insurance do not offer health coverage outside international borders, buying overseas health insurance is necessary.
