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.

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 !

Thanks for the email, i have a doubt on this issue beucase as stated in the website of minsitry of Health they specifically siad that hepa B and C will not be part of the test for those labours not listed on the 6 categories mentioned .Which is true to this??? any idea..
