old tb
brother,pls.try to check or research the new dubai law 28 of 2010.maybe because of this law the resault is "medically unfit".we have the same situation,negative resault for sputum and blood test but still,medically unfit.also irregularity of chest xray.if you have old or new tb,resault is unfit..that is the new dubai law,tnx.
my question now is,can i come and enter the uae again if im totally clear and free from tb?because i think once you have failed for medical,they are giving you a lifetime banned,is it true?

Good Day Rahil,
Good Day Rahil,

Dear as i know here immigration will not disclose anything but once its lifeban for labour Employment then as of now its NO ENTRY.

But today i spoked to Director of DHA she is also not clear, may be after sometime they will rule out for (OLD TB)hope for the best.

Only for family like wife & kids their is no ban,some people say 6 Months/No Ban/Life Ban,honestly saying i'm fighting for our rights lets pray & hope for the best,take care.

One more request if your in India plz try to settle in india itself,i know money matters but end of the day we will realise what we miss.

Regards

Your Well wisher

hello friend,
I am facing the same problem as you are. I am presently in UAE and been adviced to leave the country as soon as possible. I have travelled around the world and even been in the shipping industry where the rules and regulations on medical backgrounds are much more strict. So it would be of great help if you can suggest me with measure to be taken before i have to leave the country. I have done my blood test and xray in 2 diognistic centers and the results are negative. Please advice me. I cant leave this place as I have 4 other people dependent on me in my home town. Thank yopu so much for your help and concern.

@disp:
Thanks a lot for your kind reply..
but i forgot to mention it in my post that its not lifeban on labour employment.
Actually my mom came here on residence visa sponsered by my dad who is also living here.
She has been declared as medically unfit due to old tb.
and immigration is goin to put lifeban for entering UAE.
We are worried because first time my dad somehow managed to bring her to UAE but unfortunately she has to go back and that too for OLD TB which is not active now and she is not infectious to others also.
We are doubtful can we get her back on visit visa atleast sometimes later...or is there any other solution for it??
Please help me out..we are very much disturbed these days..
Thanks
Rahil.

Rahil,

I believe we come to know only after cancellation,your mother visa is expired or not,do you know penalty charges?

I know b'coz of all commitments we struggle to get family again here we face problems,but keep hopes & praying,keep updating.

Even my family disturbed yaar,really its very pain.

Don't worry its matter of time,things will be better,take care.

Hi Rahil,

Tell me may be they have given you an letter saying old or active TB?

As per the federal law here if old/active TB "Medically Unfit" in UAE,but information is not clear about BAN.

If PPD (Mantoux Test is positive)then they treat as active pulmonary TB not old TB.

In my case Sputam- Negative,Blood Test -Negative and Mantoux Test(ppd)-Negative only X-Ray showing some Scars they assumed not confirmed then they declared as Medically Unfit & OLD TB,which we never heard,but i went to private clinic only for X-ray report says "Pnemonia is noted & TB is concerned " i moved for further i came to know this scars is b'oz of "Brancovascular Markings" medical terms sas as below:

Bronchiovascular marking in the lungs are nothing but the normal making of the blood vessles of the lungs which are supplying to the bronchi and bronchiols these marking are increase in the case of any infection or inflammation.These are reconized by the prominent low density liner opacities in the lungs feild these are more prominent on the hilar region which is suggestive of an infection or inflammation.

Rahil have patience may be they rule out old TB very soon you can see from last three days news about Health in Gulf News.

Take care,Convey my regards

hello asim, what was the result of your medical test. have they done sputum & skin test? provide details please.

replied August 6th, 2011
hi Rajesh. yes the amazing thing is that once they found scar in my upper side of lung they asked me to come for more test like skin test, another blood test and sputum test. and they took very long in that and result came negative in all those tests. and after all that they made excuse of the first x-ray report only.
so the question is that if they have to make decision only on xray reports why they waisting people's time.
and also when its old tb scars and is innactive ptb then why they are cancelling people. I think the people sitting in health ministry are not eligible for tht jobs bcoz they dont know anything

UAE rejected Tuberculosis cases....
Asim, I dn't think so that anybody have old scars can't enter in UAE again, it is not sure.
1- Fahad first you take proper medicens for that.
2- Take a medical fitness certificate from you doctor.
3- Go to GAMCA (GCC country approved medical center) in your home country and take medical certificate.
4- Then take visit visa and go to UAE then in UAE go to any Govt. hospital and take medical certificate from here.
With these documents you will clear everything. There is no life time ban on you, I said agin THERE IS NO LIFE TIME BAN ON YOU. Only six months ban (6 months only).
Be religious and take lot of prayers of your parents then take this decision again....... Thx.

Dear ZUAE the problem is that u are not sure on that, u should confirm this first as thts why they take eye and finger scan and when again somebody will enter in the uae they will stop him or her on the airport on eye scan counter.
so better to check this again and should confirm from some authorities

You can enter in UAE, If you have a life time. They will not issue a visa for that person, even a visit visa.

I tried my self to get the visit visa but they refused because i have a life time ban just because a old Tb unfit person.

If someone have a solution to lift the ban, kindly guide me.
