Does anybody know what's EK visual requirements for cabin crew?
Do they test you in your home country and then in Dubai?
What's the procedures?

Thank you in advance :)

Yes you must pass an eye exam prior to joining and again they will do one on the medical day during induction.

I don't think it's too strict though, they say you have to wear contacts but you can get approval to wear glasses. I did because in Dubai the air was so dry it made it impossible for me to wear my contact lenses for more than an hour or two after some time. When I was newly flying I wore them even on ULR but by 12 months in EK I was wearing glasses on all flights.

The only rule is if you wear contacts you must have a spare pair of glasses with you at all times. Same goes for glasses. So either contacts + 1pr glasses or 2pr glasses.

I have short sightedness as well as astigmatism and they accepted me no problem. You just can't have anything like sight loss
