Anti depressants and visa

Hi there

I recently gained employment in Riyadh. I am currently going through the medical check list and I have heard that if you are on anti depressants the Saudi embassy will not issue you a visa.

Has anyone got any more background information on this?

They don't check for anti depressants.   The blood tests are for illnesses like HIV, Hep B, Hep C etc.

It all comes down to your own declaration in the pre-employment medical that you will do.  Most people don't declare and don't have issues - even when they get treated here and fill prescriptions.   

GCC government concerns are around infectious incurable diseases.

I wouldn't worry too much about it and don't unnecessarily declare irrelevant details.
