I need advice my friend is going a medical exam in sales she worried about coz she having a hepa b result last 2009 and not going check up again she worried if found positive...


The Hepatitis tests are for newcomers and for those looking for job as babysitters, nursery and kindergarten employees, housemaids, workers at barber shops, health clubs or restaurants seeking new visa or renewal. Such applicants will have to undergo these tests when entering the emirate and also during visa renewal process, and if found positive, would be deported.

I'm an accountant. Is my profession part of the 6 categories? I have received direct jobs offers from companies in UAE before but had ignored them as im hep b positive and I thought people with hep b cannot work in middle east.

Are you still in Dubai? I'm an accountant and planning to go there. Will they check me for hepa b?

My name is Arslan Khalid, my wife came in UAE on husband visa when we went for her medical we were informed that she is medically unfit and has TB and was returned back with life time ban, kindly advise if there is any legal process to lift the ban as we have done her medical and all got cleared.
Hoping to hear from you.

Medical screening result-FIT

I feel I have the obligation to share my case with you all who might be also bothered by hep b question.

My profession is technical manager. I am working for a company in Jebel Ali Free Zone.
I got the offer at the beginning of this year and I disclosed my hep b to company HR because I didn't want to take any risk. After all, moving from a country to UAE is not an easy thing.
HR was very very helpful. They asked DHA, and answer was clear and confirmative, only 6 categories will detect hep b.

Then I took the bold decision (with certain risk of course, because you never know what will happen even though DHA confirmed) and came to Dubai this May.
Last Wednesday, I got medical test and I was shaky because I was thinking if I failed, I could be deported...
I checked on internet yesterday(Sunday), only wrote "result issued" in Salem.dha.gov.ae.
I was so frustrated because I didn't know the actual result. I asked HR and the most graceful lady told me: you passed and result is FIT.
I was in such a joy and today she sent me the medical report with
"FIT" and stamp "Free from infectious diseases".

I'm looking forward to my residence visa now.
All in all, I can say as long as your profession doesn't belong to 6 categories, hep b carrier will pass medical screening.

Last but not least, wish everyone good luck and may god bless us.

Hope above helps. :-)

Hahahahaha very nice same like me😍
God bless you dear best Wishes for the future ahead!👍

is working in a pharmacy in a street belong to 6 categories?

    It's related to the medical field so pharmacy I think one of the medical field.

is working in a pharmacy in a street belong to 6 categories?

         Any department you will work in the medical field will be counted in the six catagories.
