As part of the visa laws, all students
must have health insurance for the duration of their student visa. The UOS has
partnered with Al Buhaira insurance company to provide a comprehensive and
competitively priced medical insurance plan.
This scheme is compulsory for student visa
sponsored students and optional for non-sponsored students. It provides round
the clock coverage for expenses incurred by students in a network of
hospitals and clinics in the UAE, whether as an outpatient, inpatient or
Please note that the UOS visa-sponsored
students will receive medical insurance cover after the visa is issued, the
student has attended their medicals and the visa is stamped in the passport. In
the interim, students will have to arrange their own health insurance.
