Medical test for new visa

I got my work visa for Kuwait. I have to go for medical test soon. I have ringworm on my left side. Will this make me unfit for the job?

Name withheld

Answer: To the best of our knowledge, ringworm is not one of the diseases one is tested for to be given a medical clearance to work in the Gulf. The contagious disease often tested for include AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, hepatitis and diphtheria.
