There's  been much debate about the Hepatitis B testing in Dubai in Abu Dhabi since August last year, and there's also been many mixed responses.

Technically you're not supposed to be tested/deported for testing positive for Hepatitis B if you're not applying for a residence visa under one of the six listed categories. If you are still feeling unsure, I recommend you consult with an immigration lawyer based in the UAE, it is the best way to put your fears to rest.

Also, have a look at the Visas in Abu Dhabi page.
