The authorities in Dubai, one of the seven emirates that are part of the United Arab Emirates, admitted that they expel foreigners who have been found to be HIV-infected. Nearly two-thirds of Dubai’s oil-rich population consists of foreigners who need to apply for a residence permit or to renew their visas. On these occasions, the immigration authorities take blood tests on the applicants. Those who prove HIV positive are denied a residence permit and registered so that the authorities can check that they are not returning.

Two executions in the United Arab Emirates in mid-September were criticized by the EU. The criticism prompted the member states of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council to formulate at a meeting in October a sharp note in which the EU was accused of involvement in the United Arab Emirates judiciary.
