    Hepa b is incurable & contagious hence she will not be allowed to work in UAE or anywhere in the GCC. This will come out on the blood work that everyone has to go through as part of the medical exam for employment visa

    Hi Ms. Rhea C,

    Thank you so much for the reply, just confuse though because it is in the newspapers everywhere in Dubai on 20 of August that Hepatitis B , C and TB will not be included in the medical as part of the requirement to get residence visa though in the newspaper they say that there are still six categories of labour ( meaning people who works in hospital,parlor,spa,f and b etc. that they will still impose the old rules that they should be tested for hep. b,c,tb,hiv but other profession is not included on this ... We just want to know if the said new rules are being imposed already.?

    As you know laws here in Dubai takes a long time to be implemented. I suggest that you check with DOHMS directly and make sure it is in effect already otherwise your friend might just spend money on her application only to fail the medical exam again. I just recently renewed my visa and I still had to take the bloodworks for HIV & Hepa.

    8001111 & 800 2742 are the toll free numbers

    If by chance the above numbers are wrong, my applogies just take the Ministry of Health call center number and call them they will clarify your doubt.

    Just today there was some information to the contrary better check before you make decisions .. I doubt it refers to HEPA B .. i think it was in conjunction with TB but that too not for first arrivals but for people who are renewing their visas !

    Better check with the Ministry of Health to inquire directly. Or your friend can take the chance and come and be ready with possible rejection if money & time is not an issue for her.
