Dear all,

Has anybody carried out his medical pre-employement check being colour blind in UAE?What was the outcome?

I have been working as an engineer for ovee 20 years, always deemed fit and never had a problem abroad as it has never affected my work as Im not a pilot nor an Electrician. I dont if drs. criteria in UAE is different.

Thanks,

Jon

Dunno about for a job - I was never asked but I've not changed jobs for yonks.

Did have it tested when I renewed my driving license. I asked the guy and he implied red/green blind might be a problem for getting a driving license.

Had to get an eye test done to renew my license. The eye doctor wasn't there though so the other doctor asked me if my eyes were okay.

I said yes.

he stamped the form.

Sounds like Italy. Just pay and get stamped. I've done that a few times.
