All expats must have health screening in UAE

All expatriate workers who want to work in the UAE must get medical tests done in both their home countries and in the UAE prior to receiving a work visa for the emirate.

The Ministry of Health will prepare and implement the legislation to put the new system into effect.

Any expatriate who wishes to work and live in the UAE is required to get a health check to see if he or she has HIV/AIDS, syphilis, or pulmonary TB. Housemaids and nannies will also be subjected to a pregnancy test, while kindergarten school employees, barber shop, health club, and restaurant workers will also have to test for hepatitis B.
