Just got my GC on Saturday ( together with ~20 other girls from Romania ) - DOJ 3rd of October - and I will start with the medicals. There are 10 different vaccines required by them and I need your advise wheter I should take them before joining or upon arrival. I know that once joined, I will have to pay for all of them, no problem with that. But these vaccines - Tetanus, Typhoid, Yellow fever etc - seem to be too much to be done in a 2 month period. What do you think ? Has anybody done them so far ?
I would like to ask your suggestion for this case. I had the FI on June 25 and My online application status changed to "You will be contacted.." like 10 days ago and EK's coordinator in Vietnam informed me that i got the job. The coordinator asked me to wait for the GC to be informed with the DOJ and medical test procedure.
However, It has been more than 10 days and i havent got any official GC from EK until now. I am getting nervous now, is there any case that they will disqualified me after that stage? or is there any thing going on there? (my friends in my FI have been called)
I really really need your advise to calm down a bit.
Don't worry, YWBC means you will get the GC for sure. I got mine after 10 days since my status changed to YWBC. There are still girls in Romania who had the FI in May, YWBC on 9th of July and still waiting.
Thanks very much for your advice. Im getting more and more nervous everyday and I have never left my phone since the status changed.
Regarding to the Vaccines, As I have been reading this forum from the beginning, people suggested that we should all do it prior to departure to Dubai since it is going to be very expensive there and also, it will be quite hard for you to find the place for injection. For further information, you can read back at Emirates - Wannabes & Recruitment VIII page 6-7.
I applied to EK, made It to FI but I got a rejection mail. To The issue; In the mail I was told; "We do see potential In you and you are welcome to reapply In 6 months" (Instead of regular 12, witch Is a good sign) So my questions are; Do you think they found out about my previous employer Qatar A?
(I changed my passport before attending thou) And what does It mean, "We see potential.." Why didn't they just hire me right away?
I had registered online for AD in Kiev (11-12 aug), but they did a remark, saying "Preliminary Selections will be done in conjunction with our appointed agency LALSAT" and it seems like nothing going on in LALSAT since march Am I have to wait for invitation or could I go anyway? Will appreciate any information or advice
IrenKa: Well, i experienced this. In this case, you must find the coordinator in your home country and apply for them first. Usually, they will conduct a pre-screening (like OD) before sending you an invitation to AD (of course you will have to pay some agent fee). Usually, they will send qualified candidates only to the AD. In the AD, they will ask you for the invitation letter and reference number (given by the coordinator) and there you go to the regular AD.
Noted: The Local coordinator has no decision toward the AD.
I would like to ask for your suggestion about my case. My status changed to "You will be contacted..." for the last 4 weeks and i have not got any call or information from them so far neither the on hold mail. I contacted my local coordinator and they keep asking me to wait for their information. I dont know how long should i wait...:-S
Have any of you experienced this long waiting after the status changed?
thanks in advance

Can someone tell me what are the pre requirements for Dental standards before joining Emirates ? I heard that you have to have all fillings done and wisdon teeth removed ? Is this correct ? What other standards do they have ?
Hello Fafi, as for your teeth they have to be good looking but they don't need to be perfect. You can't have any visible teeth missing, and wisdom teeth should be removed if they can affect your other teeth, this should be evaluated by your dentist, if they grow fine then there is no problem in keeping them. EK requires you to get x rays so they can see if everything is ok. And as you say you have to have all fillings done. Braces or even invisalign are not accepted, you have to finish treatment before joining. Hope this helps!
to my dear friends in East africa Emirates is not coming back to nairobi,a[[arently they have enough Kenyans for now. looks like we may have to travel all they way to South africa or any other country to get a short at this. Really sad!
went to my assessment day yesterday and didn't get through. I thought I was doing quite well until I got the "unfortunately" letter.
When one of the recruiters was asking how I came to be in Dubai I mentioned that my dad's a pilot for Emirates and we came over from Qatar... Thought that I was just giving a little bit of history, but could this have been seen as me trying to use the fact that my dad's already with the company to get in? A kind of "dropping names" thing? I didn't intend it to be, but from an outsiders opinion is that what it could have looked like?
I'd be interested if this is something I should avoid mentioning in 6 months when I apply again.
