If she does not have or has lost the yellow certificate card the vaccination for Hepatitis B will be given and will cost 50 AED.

Submit the renewal application along with the maid’s medical fitness to any of the DNRD Branches located around Dubai. Once submitted you will get an SMS from the DNRD saying “Your medical fitness result has been sent to the DNRD”. You must now go to any DNRD branch and the medical report will be shown in their systems.
NOTE: If you are renewing your maid’s visa for the third time you will need to show proof of that maid’s deposit.
Next, the immigration department/DNRD will hand you 3 unofficial copies of a contract which must each be signed by you, the maid and the immigration official.
