Question Emirates/Dnata Medical

Does Anyone know the requirements Medical wise for working with Emirates/Dnata in Non Air?

I have been offered and accepted a job with Dnata in Dubai, all is accepted, except my Medical information. I have a high BMI and thus was required to do more tests by Medical. My blood pressure was a little high (I am anxious!) and my blood results were perfectly fine.

Now I have been asked to get a report from my GP to ascertain my hypertension. My GP has said it is nothing more than my weight and with my regime will lose it and my BP will come down with it. However I do not need medication and nothing 'sinister'.

I am REALLY concerned they are going to withdraw my contract now? Or is this for the Insurance Coverage? Does anyone know why they want this? I offered my past 2yrs sickness record from my current employee but they have said they don't need as its not for this reason.. Any light would help as I am getting concerned and only have 40 days until my joining date.

Keep calm... just a routine check to ensure you don't have an existing illness that would then go under their insurance once joined...

Thank you so much.
I have never had such an indepth joining process. I know its a massive investment for the group. Also this is the most amazing career progression for me.

Once this is completed its just arriving and finishing off the rest of the formalities.
