Dubai launches a new system to streamline your medical tests, meaning you could get your UAE residency visa in less than 30 minutes!
The new Dubai visa centre in City Walk was opened by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
And it will dramatically cut the time you need to wait for a visa from 28 hours to just 30 minutes. Which is ace news for everyone!
The ‘Salem Intelligent Center‘ in Dubai opened on Thursday and is the first of its kind in the world. The centre uses AI, robotics, the Internet of Things and plenty of cutting-edge technology in the process.
AI leading the way
Robots and AI are at the centre of the whole operation. You’re greeted by Salem the robot on arrival, who then takes you through the process. This includes registration, medical fitness tests, iris scans and taking your biometric data.
And there’s even good news for those afraid of needles. The new Salem centre uses cutting-edge technology to draw blood that doesn’t use a needle.
There was more good visa news recently. The UAE announced that it was going to give tourists to the UAE a five-year visa.
