Bringing Medication into the UAE
Did you know that if you’re carrying controlled medication into the UAE, you must apply for approval through the Ministry of Health (MoH) website?
You can check with your doctor if your prescribed medication is controlled or not. You must also carry the prescription for the quantity (max 3 months’ supply) of the medicine that you are bringing into the UAE.
All other medication (prescription for uncontrolled medication and over the counter medication) does not need prior approval from MoH.
For more details please visit the Ministry of Health and Prevention website.
