Worried about getting tested in Dubai?

There are many misconceptions when it comes to testing for STIs in Dubai. People worry that getting tested could mean being fined, losing employment, or even being thrown in jail. Let’s get to the bottom of what is factually accurate.


Firstly, it’s important to remember that there are certain communicable diseases (HIV and Tuberculosis) that all UAE residents are tested for to obtain a work visa, and workers in certain specific industries (food, domestic workers, nurseries etc.) are also tested for Hepatitis B and Syphilis.


As of 2016, HIV is the only communicable disease which can impact someone’s immigration status in the UAE.


Any other infection we test for has no impact on your job or visa status. By chance, if you do have positive results, in most cases, a short course of antibiotics will be the only thing you need to worry about.


We appreciate going to a clinic can be an embarrassing experience, so instead stay at home and take advantage of our courier delivered STI test kits. Keep your health a priority, and speak to our team if you have any concerns or questions.
