Possible to work temporarily in UAE?
« on: May 05, 2021, 05:29:35 pm »
Hi all!

Can anyone help providing information on wether itís possible to enter and work temporarily in Dubai being hiv+?

Iíve read there are restrictions, and that an hiv test is standard for requesting residency. Positive individuals are deported. How up to date is this?

I am on treatment and undetectable for years.

Is it possible to access treatment there? Is it possible to bring your own meds?

01/16 diagnosed
03/16 cd4 750 VL 150,000
03/16 truvada+ritonavir(norvir)+reyataz
06/16 cd4 -- VL UD!
09/16 truvada+ritonavir(norvir)+duranavir(prezista)
03/17 cd4 -- VL UD

Rules are still applied and its clear. For expats, you cant issue a work permit without HIV negative test. Any ELISA positive test will be deported immediately in a dehumising settings.

Nonetheless, You can bring your own medication if you are on a visit or a short stay related to work which does not require issuing a permit.

Hope its clear for you.

Hi, I decided to forfeit work/residency in UAE for this reason. Unfortunately there is no way around it - annual health check and HIV test. For short visits though, you can bring your own meds and should not worry. Just do not mention anything.
