1. Apply for a residence visa, Emirates ID and medical fitness report within 30 days of the arrival of your maid's entry into the country. Visit an authorized typist & pay for either urgent or non-urgent form & go take maid for medical fitness & Emirates ID biometrics.
2. Take your maid for a medical fitness test (see locations and contact numbers for 14 centres for medical fitness in Dubai). The Medical Fitness Centre at Sonapur is open 24 hours for men and women, though for new visas for women, it is only open from 8 am till 8 pm. Just in front, there is a 24 hours Emirates ID centre, though for women, it is only open from 7 am until 9.30 pm.
All new maids will be screened for HIV, pregnancy, Hepatitis B, Syphilis, TB & Leprosy. The Hepatitis B vaccination which costs an additional AED 50 is given in 3 doses - immediately, booster after 1 month and booster after 6 months. If you keep the yellow certificate as proof of all three doses, then when renewing your maid's visa, you do not need to re-do this, as the vaccination and certificate is valid for 10 years.
