Yup there's not a lot you can do really. The GCC practices medical apartheid - even for working professionals who are treated and take steps to limit contagion they don't care and buy into the whole Hep/HIV stigma thing in a big way.

Can't you call the Saudi Embassy or Consulate in your country and find out directly from them?

Or do a google search and find their website which will have the exact requirements for visa applications...

Probably - he's definitely there for work and not through choice.

I'd better make sure there is plenty of wine and beer in the fridge for when he returns.

Actually not that difficult. Get a friend of hers to take the test in your wifes name - pref one who does not have any medical conditions.

You need to work out why she has got Hepatitis too!

I think it's him that has hepatitis, not his wife - presumably she doesn't have it.

Anyway, would whoever takes the test not have to prove their identity with a passport or some other form of photo identification?
