Procedures for Enrolling Newborns in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

We are pleased to inform you that we have extended the expiry date of MedNet direct billing services for newborns in the UAE that are enrolled without an EID number.

Based on information provided by the Dubai Health Authority, newborns in Dubai will be enrolled immediately and will have access to direct billing services for 120 days from their date of birth.

The Health Authority of Abu Dhabi has also confirmed that newborns are not required to have an EID number for one year after birth. As a result, we will be enrolling newborns in Abu Dhabi immediately with full access to direct billing services and will then collect the EID number at renewal.

We sincerely hope that the above requirements will serve to ease the enrolment process for our mutual clients who are new parents in the UAE.
