UAE is 6 categories only.  In the rest of the GCC, you cannot get a work visa.

Try to read what I have posted.

Office boy is fine unless you are working in a school or nursery in which case it will be an issue.  Only you can figure out what your situation is and refer back to what the government says - as posted above.

I know we're partly discussing this topic onto a different thread, but this link was very useful to me, it says:

"The emirate of Abu Dhabi screen foreign nationals to detect pulmonary tuberculosis by a chest x-ray; however, the emirate of Dubai does not."

So no xrays for new visas?

As far as I know, there IS an X-ray for new visas in all Emirates.

For example, when I got my first UAE visa back in 2010, I went through X-Ray in Dubai and then again for renewal in 2013.

There IS an X-ray for new visas in all Emirates. Then every time we renew it, should follow the same
