Hi! : :cheers:

I've been scanning through this blog and it seems there are a lot of conflicting information about Hep B. I'm also a Hep B inactive carrier and I have a plan to work in Dubai. So I started looking up through UAE news articles and found this...

"Dr Awadh said the new laws mean that visa screening tests for hepatitis B now only applies to six specified categories of expatriates – nannies, housemaids, and nursery workers; hairdressing salon workers; beauty centre workers; health club workers; anyone working in processing or food-control authorities; and those in cafes and restaurants.These are professions that have more human-to-human contact, he explained.Moves are now being made to relax the rules further, so they do not apply to those working in cafes or restaurants, he added."

I was happy about this info BUT there are still some comments on this blog and other net articles that says otherwise. I just want a clear answer to this dilemma coz what if I'll go to Dubai and apply for a profession that is NOT in the 6 categories but the employer wanted me tested for Hep B anyway? Will I be able to say no and look for another job/employer or will I have to do the test anyways and get deported? I'm just scared of what might happen once I'm there, I just wanted to be really sure coz it'll be expensive to go and I don't want to just get deported coz I'm Hep B carrier. Gosh, I just wish brilliant scientists find a cure for us already, it's so unfair for us carriers to face this kind of problem it's not like we wanted it right? Anyways, anyone who has a clear info on this please post something with hard facts if you have one coz it would really be helpful. Thank you guys!I hope to hear from you! :top: 

It is clear that for Dubai visa. Hepatitis test is not required for job other than 6 categories.

please confirm anyone that the same rule is apply to othe emirates or not particularly for sarjah

Hi! Im from Philippines. During my pre employment medical exam I was diagnosed with Hepa B Reactive. I have a pending job offer with Dubai Duty Free as a Cashier. Is there a chance that I would be able to be granted a working/employment/residence visa? My agency informed me that the clinic is only following the Gamca guidelines and they cannot process my application in which the clinic told me that they following it. I asked them if it is the updated guidelines and they cannot answer me. Theyb tag me as unfit and I had a 2nd opinion with Department of Health for confirmation of my blood and still waiting for the result. I will work as a cashier and it will not fall under the 6 categories. You think I should continue the application? There's already the job offer and my medical is the one that hinders me. As I found about this, it feels like that all my dreams are gone. Hope to hear from you guys. Thank you!

hi all.
I came to Dubai on September 2015 for a engineering JOB.I Cleared the visa here in spite of Hepatitis B +ve.I have UAE ID now. So it is clear that at least for Dubai no problem for Hepatitis B+ve for employee other than 6 categories.
So you can proceed. I have asked the nurse at the testing center, she told it will not be tested for your job category.

Now I have another question to those who are staying here in Dubai for quite long time.
I heard there is a rule here that any lab/hospital/clinic find any person with infectious disease should report authority immediately. what if one clear the visa and during any doctor visit for any health issue he disclose his Hepatitis status to the hospital. Do they report to authority and you will be deported for hepatitis B+ even though you are not under 6 categories.
Because you can't hide it as you are staying here long term.
please anyone help.

What happened to your application?

If you are going to work as cashier and if you sell food then you are under 6 categories, remember 6 categories list is quite big , any kind of job wich is related work with food, close contact with human and kids, hospitals even if you are cleaner there is no way you will be granted for visa
so consider everything and change your working field completely

Hi everyone, I have browsed this forum from page 1 till last page, but I haven't got confirmed information on my following questions:

my husband is working in Abu Dhabi since January 2017 and I am planning to join him living there (as a housewife - not working). Could you please inform us, what are the blood test requirement for this kind of visa? I am an HbsAG+ person since I was born, with HbeAg- so my virus is inactive. We have been married for 21 years, and my husband as well as our two kids (20 and 18 years old) are all HbsAg- .

And also, is it possible that I come to Abu Dhabi in a tourist visa and convert to wife visa while there? I am from Indonesia.

Thanking you for all the information. Best regards,

hi, i am under same condition as you.
i am planning to go to Abu Dhabi 3 months later with wife visa.
Did you pass the medical test?

Hi Fiona, I haven't gone to Abu Dhabi yet. Husband is there already, I am in the home country finishing things out before joining him. I will go on tourist visa probably in September 2017. Hope they authority does not check HbsAg for housewife visa (first/new application). Aamiin. How about you? Do tell me if you pass the medical test.

could u ask ur husband to call medical center directly? i am also eager to know the rule, but my husband still not there .

I am a registered architect with considerable experiences. I am hepa b positive. Ever since, even those times I have not been diagnosed with this disease, working at Dubai has been one of my considerations as it is a booming field of architecture.

I have known online that dubai leans its policies on hepatitis patients. This gives a blink of hope to my dream of coming to Dubai. I am now planning to go to that country with a visit visa. however, I am anxious that such a visa may require a hepa b testing result.

May I ask, if a visit visa requires blood tests?

If I may be admitted for the visit visa, is it possible for me to apply at dubai and have my visit visa changed with working visa??

any help please. If ever I may have such a hope, I shall be coming to dubai asap..

Thanks.

Hi.. visit visa doesn't require any blood test only employment visa does .. if you need any help with the  visit visa I can provide you a tourist office number in Dubai it cost AED 999 and it may take few days for the process.

Hi Guys,

I have a situation here and sincerely hope for your advice.
I have been working in dubai for 5 years and when i was changing the employer last month I was told by the medical centre that I had hepa B. it was only a pre-employment medical so I hope I was not reported to government. After that I left and planning to come back for a new employment (not the one that checked me).
Does anyone know if the new rule will apply for marketing managers / specialists ? I was always working for hotels that's why the usually checked hepa B but I can be a marketing manager in a different field.

Please share your thoughts, brothers and sisters.

An urgent answer/advise would be appreciated.

I have a job offer to come  to Dubai for a security job and I discovered that I am hepatitis positive during my test in Nigeria(few days ago).
I have read that hepatitis b+ve can only affect 6 categories applying for residence. But I would like to hear from someone that recently entered the UAE, would I be affected?

I am presently working in Nigeria, I don't want to loose at both end.

Thanks.

Call any governmental hospital in dubai and ask about your specific occupation, generally shouldn't be a problem but if it is a hotel they will include hepa b into the blood test
