DHA offers prepaid card for outbound UAE patients


The cards will be loaded with the required foreign currency amount that the patients can utilise upon arriving at their destination.

Patients will no longer have to physically visit overseas DHA offices or UAE Embassies for payment approvals, nor banks in the destination country for cash collection.

Card issuance and other fees will be waived off and special foreign exchange rates offered to provide increased value to customers. Cardholders will be able to track their spends and balances through a dedicated mobile app.

The card works like a general-purpose prepaid card, enabling cash withdrawals and payments in dirhams when in the UAE and in foreign currencies when travelling overseas.
