Question How strict they deal Scar in Chest Xray in Medical

Hi,

I've got a job offer in Dubai. I was reading about the medical examination. I've a small scar on my lungs which is visible in Chest Xray. It was due to TB I had few years ago. I completely recovered at that time however the scar is left.

I want to know what are the possible actions they will take after seeing that scar in my chest xray? Will they just put a ban on me or will they perform any additional test to check TB? What kind of additional test they can perform to check active TB symptoms? If I clear the examination then will they still allow me to work in Dubai or just reject me due to the scar?

Second how long does it takes to get the result after you appear for the tests?

Google it, there are many newspaper articles regarding this:
'Ban on newcomers with TB scar outdated' - Emirates 24/7

Usually the result will come in the next day, pretty much awesome service, and this is the normal fee, they have the VIP thing, so you get it next day, but due to low number of applicants, you'll get it the next day or max after 2 days with normal fees.

It seems they treat it on case by case.

So, take your chances, you may be ok! I mean you got nothing to loose.

Good luck.

Dear pm369,
it is great to hear that you received your medical fit certificate.
Maybe you can help me, because i'm trying to get husband visa for my wife, she had TB 24 years ago when she was a teen, but fully cured at this time and now she is working as a nurse in a hospital.
Can you imagine that she is working in hospital in Europe and here in uae they will not even give a husband visa, even without work permit. So to say but this law is really from the stone age!!!!
I heard since years that the law will be changed very soon, but nothing was happen, and so far I don't know whether the law has changed.
Kindly let me know if this is now possible, that you can get visa with so called "old TB scars", and if yes what is the procedure to do.

Thanks in advance.

Same thing happened with me two years back when I got job offer in Dubai but I had to go home after getting an unfit medical report due to scars. No I came again in last October and got another job and got FIT MEDICAL REPORT with same issue. I think they became flexible in this rule because its outdated.
