A highly advanced medical fitness centre for residence visa applications has opened at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

The state-of-the-art facility, powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides results within 30 minutes of screening.

His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, inaugurated the centre on Wednesday.

The facility, which is spread across 12,000 square feet is 100 per cent digital and paperless.

It features seven private blood collection rooms, three X-ray rooms, an on-site laboratory, eight smart check-in kiosks, in addition to an Emirates ID biometrics office and an Amer support office.

Emirates ID biometrics and other visa application support services will soon be available on-site, providing customers with a quick and easy residence visa processing experience.

The Smart Salem Centre, which was established through a public-private collaboration, is the second of its kind to open in Dubai. The first one, located in City Walk, was inaugurated in 2020.

Both the centres are open six days a week from Sunday to Friday.

The third Smart Salem centre is expected to open in TECOM by the end of this year.
