Hi Niyati,

What industry will you be working in? As far as I know, the UAE will only test for Hepatitis C in applicants in certain industries, and who are coming to work in the UAE for the first time. Gulf News recently published an article on these regulations (click here to read). The article is primarily about TB testing but there are also references to legislation regarding Hepatitis C testing. I would also encourage you to seek advice directly from your local UAE embassy or an immigration expert for clarity on this.

Please read the article I gave a link to in my first response. To confirm, you will need to ask your local UAE embassy or an immigration lawyer/expert if Hepatitis C will be tested.

I am coming in sales sector and this is my first entry to Dubai,will I be tested for hcv c for my medical test

As a driver it is unlikely that you will need to be tested for hepatitis C to get a visa once you have a job. Only those working in salons, beauty centres, health clubs and sanitation are tested for hepatitis C for visa purposes.
