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 !

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..

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.

Medical - Hepa B & C are not part of the test IF you have already had your medical exam in UAE last year for your previous year visa...I think.

than you Saffron,
yes it is confirmed that UAE will limit only to 6 categories of job for hepatitis b testing , i am actually worry on how i could request the immigration to clear my ban my big problem but hopefully they will reconsider.

They wont reconsider....If you have a ban cause of Hep C then there is no way your going to enter through the airports.

I got that yes hepa c, HIV and Tuberculosis are subject for deportation but with hepa b they only check it with specific cat. of jobs. in my case it is hepa. b, so i am hoping there will be exception of reviewing those who were ban.

I am sailing in the same boat as you my friend.I was offered a job in Dubai as Project manager for a construction company in Dubai in 2009 and when i went for my medical i was found to be suffering with Hepatitis B hence my visa was denied ,i was asked tp go back to India in 15days (whic i did) and worst i was put in the "BLACKLIST" with permanent banned from entering in Dubai or UAE.
I can confirm that they are checking for hepatitis B if one falls in the specified 6 categories,but regading the removal of ban for people like you and my -i have no clue.I have been tring to contact UAE consulate in India for the infoprmation but unfortunately they are of no help -all they say is you have to try in Dubai but not understanding that i need a visa to go to Dubai and i cannot get that till my name is off the "BLACKLIST".
My friend if you have any information please do let me know.
God bless you

HI Rambo Deep,
About the ban from what i been hearing and i also called the clinic where my friend had her failed medical in Al Muhaisnah Clinic the person i spoke in the clinic there said the ban can be cancelled the only thing the person need to do is to bring the unfit med.certificate and the passport copy of the person and then the clinic will make a letter requesting the immigration to remove the ban or unblock the person's name.If you know which clinic ur friend had her/his medical try to call the clinic so you can confirm what needs to be done to remove the ban.I think the consulate in your country can't give you advise on that the best way is to call the clinic where ur friend had his/her medical they can surely advise you what to do.the same way i did they direct me to the person in the clinic and advise me what to be done.try it!

Just check the below link which is self explanatory. As per the oct 2010 law, Hep B positive will be considered for the treatment without deportion.
The post by Mr.Ram saying that he was deported, before the oct 2010 law.
Best of luck
