Being a resident of the UAE requires health insurance. Car insurance is required if you have one.
Here is information on recommended insurance:
It is mandatory for all residents of the UAE. The prices vary enormously depending on the type of care (from AED 600 per year to AED 15000 per year).
It is possible to take out insurance directly or go through a broker.
It is not possible to register or renew a vehicle without auto insurance.
There are usually 2 types of insurance: third-party and full (third-party liability for passengers, your car, etc.). Some offer a replacement vehicle, breakdown assistance, etc.
If you go to the desert or to Oman, it should be mentioned in the insurance contract as these are often options.
It is not compulsory but highly recommended. It is particularly important to be able to be relocated by insurance if the property can no longer be occupied (after fire, etc.).
We also advise to have an annual multi-trip insurance which allows to cope in case of problems abroad (ski accident, hospitalization abroad etc.).
