From what I understood from my company PRO that that the govt. is very strict on a issue for new applications ( any case which has left the country for more then 6 months). They cancelled my visa saying 'sick cancellation' and I had to leave the country before a particular date. There is no stamp of deportation on my passport but I was told that this would be a life time ban and that I would not be able to work in Dubai on employment basis.
Is this strictness for newcomers only and they get banned if appeared in such kind of case??

I am not sure if this is only for new applications to Dubai or for those renewing their visas also.

Can somebody advice the sequence for TB test:
1. X RAY and in case of suspicion, subsequent tests or all the tests are done irrespective of X ray result ?
2. Is a medical required for a visit visa ?

Hello toughnut. If im not mistaken, once they detected a scar on your Xray, to rule out that you have active TB, a sputum test and The mantoux text (they will inject a small dose of bacteria in your body and the result is based on how your body reacts to it), will be done.

Is this a new law in the UAE about not renewing or issuing Visa to those with scarred lungs xray?

I had my BCG, lead a healthy lifestyle but unfortunately i got TB while i was 4 months pregnant. I was lucky enough to be able to go back to my country and i completed the 6 months antibiotic recovery period. Since i had the TB, I did my medical check up at SEHA to renew my residence visa twice. 2009 and 2012. I had to do the additional xray for the next 3 months, a sputum text and a mantoux text only for 2009. In 2012 i only had to do the second xray test. They gave me a FIT stamp.

Now after reading all these post, I cant help but feeling abit worried now. My next visa renewal in is 2015. I really hope by then, the UAE health authority will come out with a clear cut rule for this unfair law.

Besides they are just doing their duty. Its the law that has to change. That said , We intend to find out exactly what it is for my mom's general health maintainance.

Does anyone know if one can visit Dubai if they can not apply for residency?
There is no problem to visit Dubai. The ban only applies to anyone who has been declared Medically unfit.

If your condition left a scar on your lungs, this will be a problem.
