Hi is there a life time ban if you have been deported before because of having hepatitis b? Because my friends want to come back here for a tourist visa and find another job but not in relation to the 6 categorical. Thanks for any reply.

Hi Nic,
I would like to asking about something.
I read in the internet that start from 19 august 2010 that UAE has allow expatrite who have hepatitis B to enter the UAE.except of 6 categories.  Herewith i'm quoting from web: http://uaevisarules.wordpress.com/2010/08/21/rules-relaxed-on-workers-health-ckecks-in-uae-2/
the 6 categories are :
1 Nannies.
2.Housemaids.
3.Nursery and kindergarten supervisors.
4.Workers in hairdressing saloon, beauty centres and health club.
5.Anyone working in processing on food control authorities.
6.And those employed in cafes and restaurants.

My job is out of those categories. I am seaman.
At past in august 2008,I have good job in UAE.
I joined shipping company in Fujairah. The name is GAC/Gulf Agency Company Ltd. I supposed to have contract for 6 months.
But when the company applied residence visa for me, I failed in medical test because I have Hepatitis B. Then soon after it,
company sent me home. I was deported from UAE.
So based from that news, do I still have another chance to re-apply for work visa / seaman visa?
If yes then please advise me what steps that I must to do.
Appreciate for your kind attention and waiting for your reply.
Thank you very much.

hi just like your husband I am also a positive hepa B carrier. I just learned it after my medical for ADNOC as C-store Attendant. I am very disappointed and hopeless about my condition. The Universal staffing Agency didn't allow me to proceed my visa due to unfit of medical. Npakasakit tlaga gumuho ang mga pangarap ko n mkapag abroad lumuwas p nman ako ng Manila pra s interview n yan. So if I were you wag ka nlang mgpa medical kc e decline ka rin ng agency sayang lng ung P3,050 na medical fee s PTJ clinic. Let us accept the fact and move on. Psalamat nlang tayo buhay pa tayo but no chance going to abroad for work.

Hi Guys,
Just want to share my experience here in Dubai. I'm also following this thread before I decided to accept a job offer in Dubai. I just arrived in October this year. I'm hepa b carrier, so i'm also super worried when I got here. I got a job in a free zone company, so it's not falling into the 6 categories. During the medical test, I really prayed hard that there will be no issue and I can pass the medical. They took my Xray, and blood test. I ask the lab attendant what will they check on my blood, she said only HIV. Also when you have the medical form, it mentions there what category you are in. My category falls under - "Others", so it means not under 6 categories. After 2-3weeks of waiting, thank God my Residence Visa was released.

You can check this website as a guide: http://www.dha.gov.ae/EN/ServiceCatalogue/eServices/MedicalFitness/Pages/Packages.aspx

But I think that this category system is only applicable to Dubai. Different Emirates in UAE have different rules. I don't know about Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and others. So which is why in the Philippines, all agencies will still check HBV when working abroad.

Good luck to all. There is hope even if you have HBV. Keep a healthy lifestyle.

Thanks for sharing. the roles are the same everywhere. and free s=zone companies are more relaxed. the type of company greatly matters. e'g any position in the hotel sector you will be tested, all emirate airline staff are being tested.etc. The fear of being deported is worst than the fear of dying from HBV. I understand

Hi All,

So, here is my story which I wanted to share with you all. I am a Hepatitis B positive person and I was like all you guys who was worried about this for getting my employment visa.

I am happy to share with you all that, I got my employment visa stamped on my passport smile

Story:

I am from a computer background, recently I have been offered by a dubai based company for a very good offer. I have already got a very good job in india where I was paid good for indian standard. I know very well I was Hep B +ve person and took up the interview for the dubai company and got selected.

At this time, a big question araised before me wheather to take this offer or not. It is because, what If i take the offer and after the medicals they deport me. If that is the case, I would lose my precious job which I already have.

I did my research in internet and found out that they check hep B only for person whose work category falls under 6 categories, however there was contracdicting report that people where checked for HepB inspite that they did not fall under that six category.

I was very much in doubt, but I called Dubai Health Authority, and said that I am a computer engineer and got a job in dubai and also i am a hep B positive person will I be allowed to get visa? They replied back saying yes you can, we will not any problem in that until the immigration does not have any problem.

With all this doubt surrounding, I took a bold decision to come into dubai quiting my job. Coz, I am sure that they wont consider HbsAg until you fall under that six category. My company applied for the visa I have under gone medicals and the result came out saying "Free from Infectious Dieases" I was elated and got my visa stamped on my passport.

So it is sure that Hep B is not been tested if your job category does not fall under 6 catergories. But I was wondering how come some ppl got tested for it and rest is history.


Must do for all the candidates who apply for visa :

When your company PRO applies for medical test make sure and get it confirm from them on what job profession they are applying the visa for. Make sure, the job profession in the visa application is mentioned as to the job related to you and not from any other categories.

All the process are computeriesed and pre decided, hence if the visa application it is mentioned as food handler and if your actual work is software engineer you will be tested for Hep B. Hence make sure your PRO applies in right category for you.

All the best for everyone and don't worry you will get through until your job is not in the 6 category.

Thanks.

Hi Nic,

It's been a while since the last time I visited this site and shared my experience. I am happy that we are able to share our positive out look with our fellow hep carrier. Just a question though, I had visited one of the forums and they are saying upon renewal of residence visa you need to show a medical record that you had undergone 3 shots of vaccine. is this true?

luckily, I'm about to take an interview in one the agency that i have applied. the job is food related and it's available bound to KUWAIT, unfortunately I am a carrier of HPV. now I'm really in doubt if I'm gonna pursue it still. pls.help me
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
We carriers are not allowed to work in Middle east. like on my case I already took my final interview as a service crew bound for Kuwait. Unfortunately, I was diagnose of HPV. having said that, I still ask my employer if I can still work beyond the 6 category job. but they told me that even if I surpass the requirements (specifically Medical test) here in Philp. I will still gonna conduct the same test in Kuwait. therefore, if they will found out that your still a carrier, they will send you home. so i guess, we have to focus on our health first. I hope you don't mind. but that's our reality

But i m very much confused about my medical test, dear my eliza test for hepa b is positive but my pcr test for hepa b is negative, it means my hepa b virus is non-reactive. and my visa category is also not lying under the six mentioned categories for hepa b for new visa. Shall i under go the test of Hepa b or not. in that case if they find my eliza positive then what would they do. but in fact my PCR is negative. I request to all of you plz help me that what i have to do before and after entering the UAE. and Plz let me know that new rule for hepa b and c is 100% applicable or not. Thanks!

no worries you do not fall within the 6categories but don't accept any pre visa test done privately by any company, they will do all test and deny you the job meanwhile in the actual medical centre your position doesn't require HBV test.
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Do not reply when you don't know. I have been living in UAE for the past 6years with HBV. You are one of those who scare people. I give honest and sincere answer based on my experience.it depends on the type of company and position. In the past yes but for the past 4years the laws have been relaxed.

I was surprised there's a forum like this for overseas workers. Anyhow, I tested reactive for HbsAg (hep B) and also 1 month away from visiting my brothers in Al Ain. However, I am now considering telling them that this visit may have to be cancelled....for now.
To Heart111 who is very concerned about her health, face it and take the blood screening test. It won't cost much but you will immediately know the results in less than 24 hrs. Hep A is different from Hep B. If one acquires the infection as an adult, there's a huge chance our bodies can develop immunity to it. If one gets it since childbirth (vertical transmission- mother to baby) then it's a lifelong battle against the infection.
In my case, I have completed shots for hep b vaccines both in childhood and in adulthood (due to my college course) but I still tested reactive despite showing clear from any disease last December 2013. I even get 1-2 screens and tests annually, that's how OC I was about my health but I still got this.  About to take an ELIZA for HbsAg today. Hope this helps!
