HEALTH

A successful government immunization programme, the provision of adequate clean water and high standards of cleanliness in hotels and restaurants virtually guarantees you an illness-free visit to the UAE.

Vaccinations

No special immunizations are required. Nevertheless, it would be wise to check beforehand if you are travelling from a health-risk area. Tetanus inoculations are usually recommended if you are considering a long trip. Polio has been virtually eradicated in the UAE and hepatitis is very rare and can be avoided by taking precautions. Hepatitis A is transmitted by contaminated food and water, Hepatitis B, C, D through sexual contact, the use of unsterilized needles and blood transfusions.

Malaria

There are very few mosquitoes in the towns and cities and, since it is not considered to be a risk, malaria tablets are rarely prescribed for travel in the UAE. It is likely, however, that mosquitoes will find you if you are camping near the mountains or exploring wadis or date groves in the evening, so cover up and use a suitable insect repellent as it is always safer to avoid being bitten. If you are in any doubt consult your doctor or your nearest tropical medical centre before your trip.

Sunburn

The sun can be fierce throughout the year so heatstroke and heat exhaustion are always a risk. Adequate sunglasses, hats and high factor sun creams are essential, especially for children.

Health insurance

As with all travel, health insurance for your trip to the UAE is a must to cover all eventualities. In all instances, medical procedures, including the use of sterilized needles and the provision of blood transfusions are very reliable.

Doctors

If you need a doctor, ask at your hotel, or ring your embassy for recommendations. If you need emergency treatment and are unable to contact a doctor, try one of the major hospitals listed below.

Pharmacies

Most medicines are readily available at pharmacies. Each emirate has at least one pharmacy open 24 hours a day. Check in local newspapers for information. In some emirates a 24-hour municipality emergency number (Abu Dhabi 02 777 929; Dubai 04 2232323) lists the locations of open chemists.

Dentists

Good dentists are readily available, including orthodontists.

Alternative medicine

Chinese medicine is readily available. There is also a homeopathic hospital.

Ambulance service 998 or 999
