Is it mandatory to take out medical insurance to travel to Dubai?
It is only compulsory to take out medical insurance to travel to Dubai if you need a visa to travel to the United Arab Emirates.

The UAE offers both public and private healthcare systems. Almost 80% of the UAE health system is a private company. The public health system in the UAE is available to Emirati citizens at almost no cost, or at least at subsidized rates.
The UAE public health system includes services such as:
Basic consultation with a general practitioner
Emergency health care centers
Consultation with specialist doctors Medical prescriptions
Treatment and surgery
The UAE public health system does not provide vision, hearing, or dental care.Keep in mind that free public health centers are only available to UAE citizens. Expats living in the UAE do not have free access to the country’s public health services.
Why do I need expatriate health insurance?
Although the UAE offers free public health insurance to its citizens, expatriates are not entitled to public health benefits. To access the UAE public health system, expatriates must apply for a Health Card at the UAE Ministry of Health.
Although the health card can give you access to the UAE public health system, it is highly recommended that you also get an expatriate health insurance plan.This type of insurance gives you hassle-free access to the private healthcare system, without the anxiety of a looming huge medical bill.
