Old TB scar
For the purpose of residence visa, all matters related to the medical fitness tests in the UAE fall under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Health and Prevention (the 'Health Ministry'). Since you were cured of tuberculosis several years ago, you can apply for your residence visa and thereafter travel to the UAE. It would be prudent to travel to the UAE with all your medical records duly notarised and legalised from home country, UAE Embassy in home country followed by attestation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Co-operation in the UAE. The same set of documents may be filed with the Health Ministry if you fail in the medical fitness test due to TB scars from the past.
You may contact the Health Ministry and the office of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners' Affairs, Abu Dhabi for any further queries in this regard.
Lifting ban after pneumonia scars mistaken for TB
Q: How can a medical ban be lifted? My wife had pneumonia a few years back, which left a scar on her lungs. I had to send her to India since she got a lifetime ban. Please advise.
A: Pursuant to your question, it may be noted that the Ministry of Health may have treated the pneumonia scar as the tuberculosis scar upon X-ray revelation of chest. The relevant provisions of the Ministerial Order No. 28 of 2010 and the Federal Law No. 7/2008 specifically state that applications for new visas for persons with a previous record of having suffered tuberculosis or presently suffering from the disease are considered unfit by law for further processing.
Pursuant to this, all individuals seeking a residence/employment visa in the UAE are required to undergo a compulsory medical examination. It may be noted that the reports of the medical examination are carefully scrutinised on a case to case basis. In cases where scars are found on the lungs of an applicant, the reports are further examined for incidence of tuberculosis or any other past or current diseases the applicant had. Subsequently, the individuals confirmed to having suffered from tuberculosis on a previous occasion are imposed a lifetime ban.
In view of the foregoing, it may be noted that an immigration ban imposed on a person having previously suffered from tuberculosis may not be lifted subsequently. Since your wife's scar in lung is related to pneumonia and not tuberculosis it is advised you that you may approach the relevant health authority of repute in India and obtain a medical report stating the scar on lungs of your wife is related to previous illness of pneumonia. The same document should be legalised by the authorities concerned in India and the UAE embassy of India and subsequently the same needs to be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UAE.
The said certification may support your case in seeking a lifting of the lifetime ban. The Ministry of Health may scrutinise this report and may lift this ban if they are satisfied by this report.
However, you may contact the Ministry of Health and the office of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners' Affairs for any further queries that you may have in this regard. (KT)
Ban can't be lifted if TB scars found on lungs
Q: I got an offer of employment from a UAE-based company in 2014. However, during the medical examination, an x-ray showed scars on my lungs. Due to this, I was permanently banned from entering the UAE. I consulted a doctor and was told that I had a tuberculosis virus, but was cured. Only the scars remain.
A: Pursuant to your question, it may be noted that relevant provisions of the Ministerial Order No 28 of 2010 and the Federal Law No. 7/2008 specifically state that applications for new visas for persons with a previous record of having suffered tuberculosis or presently suffering from the disease are considered unfit by law for further processing.
Pursuant to this, all individuals seeking a residence/employment visa in the UAE are required to undergo a compulsory medical examination. It may be noted that the reports of the medical examination are carefully scrutinized on a case to case basis. In cases where scars are found on the lungs of an applicant, the reports are further examined for incidence of tuberculosis. Subsequently, the individuals confirmed to having suffered from tuberculosis on a previous occasion are imposed a lifetime immigration ban.

Expat students enrolled with UAE universities, members of diplomatic corps and leading investors will be allowed to apply for a new visa even if they have scars from cured TB since they belong to the exempt categories that also include spouses, parents and children of current UAE residents.
+ In cases of TB with treatment-resistant bacteria, the infected person will be subjected to treatment inside the country to be cured and then, if deemed fit, will have residency renewed.
TB is curable
Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease caused by bacteria that is spread from person to person through microscopic droplets released into the air. This can happen when someone with the untreated, active form of tuberculosis coughs, speaks, sneezes, or spits.
"Active TB means the person is actually experiencing all the symptoms of TB and the patient can spread the disease because it is contagious," said Dr Hassan Shurie, Consultant and Head of Technical Services in DHA's Medical Fitness Department."TB is 100 per cent curable; however, absolute compliance to treatment and regular follow-up is extremely important to treat the disease."
The combined symptoms of TB include but are not limited to coughing that lasts two to three weeks, coughing blood, chest pain, unintentional weight loss, fatigue, and fever mainly at night and sweating at night.Treatment for active TB includes isolation to prevent the spread of the disease. (KT)
If you had a disease in the past;
If a person fails the medical fitness test due to a past disease, he or she may submit all medical records to the Health Ministry to satisfy them that the individual has been cured of the malady. One has to carry all medical records duly notarised and legalised from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in one's home country and the UAE Embassy there. Subsequently, these records need to be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE.
