Dubai is one of the fastest-growing destinations for Nigerians seeking medical treatment abroad. The availability of internationally accredited specialist hospitals combined with the ease of getting medical visas to Dubai is part of the many reasons why the city remains a top choice for Nigerians looking for medical treatment abroad.
However, getting medical treatment in Dubai can be a daunting task especially for first-timers. Not to worry, in this article, we will provide you with a step by step guide on how to get medical treatment in Dubai from start to finish.
Obtain Medical Report & Test results:
Get a medical report from your hospital in Nigeria. This will contain your medical history and diagnosis by your local doctor(s). It is also advisable to carry out as many tests as possible for a better evaluation of the ailment. The medical and test reports will then be reviewed by the Dubai doctors to give you a tentative treatment plan and cost estimates.
Contact a Medical Tourism Agency
