Hi all,

I have a healthy Hepatitis B with antibody from not being extremely contagious. (Means I will be less likely to infect someone.) I want to get a family visa in Dubai. How will this effect the family visa in any way? I also know about the 6 categories due to information I read in the form. If I am not working will this help the family visa in anyway? Will they be any loop hole around this since I have a healthy hepatitis B?

How would you get a visa/residency if you're not working? Sponsorship is provided by an employer. They don't deport people with Hep B anymore, bit it's still hit and miss.

Failed to mention*

I will be moving with my husband whom will be working and sponsoring me with a family visa (once his employment/residency visa is processed). My concern is the Hep B in the medical requirements.

it does seem hit or miss, even thought the requirements from many online sources indicated Hep B is a deport-able disease, also confirmed by my husband's employer. But nothing indicates what condition/type of Hep B, as mine is healthy. It could be a "go" but also a very high risk I would be taking.

thank you!

Dear all, and joyce,
My husband works in China and has 1 year residency. I am planning to apply for family s-1 visa which I think requires a medical check. i am hep b + and been deported from dubai last year for this reason. It was worst experience of my life and now i am very worried that china will do the same. Please somebody tell me that hepatitis b is not checked!
Thanks for any response

Sorry to hear about your situation. Have you tried asking this question on the forum covering China?

Hello Guys!
I'm new to this forum but I have been reading posts in here since last year before I came to Dubai!

I wanted to let you know that I am a Hep B (HBSag+) and Thank God I got my residence visa last week!

I'm telling everyone in here to come to Dubai as the rules have been relaxed.
Hep B is only tested in 6 categories of jobs like food handlers, salon workers, medical, etc.

When applying a job also choose the company. Your company has to be outside of those category too.
Example: being an operator in a hotel, you will be tested with hep b! Why? Because hotels has restaurants and even your job is not in the restaurant as long as you are working in the hotel you will still be tested.

Also make sure that you dont apply to any company that is medical-related like insurance companies. Even if you are a call center or a messenger in an insurance company you will still get tested with hep b!

I hope this helps everyone who dreamed of getting a better future in The UAE but still afraid of trying!

God Has not forgotten us! We have a place in this world and The UAE has finally understood that what we have is not a threat to its people.


God Bless you all and see you here in The UAE Inshallah! ??????
