#2  Emirates visible scar policy  Posted 12/08/2019 at 10:02
Hello everyone this is my first post here
I attended emirates OD in Tunisia on the 10th of August
It was my first time applying for cabin crew
1st day CV drop then I got an email to join the assessment day on the 11th
I got really lucky and made it to the last portion of the process. I was given a tattoos and scar document in which I had to declare if I had any scars and I did so.
I have 2 surgical scars on my right arm. One on my forearm and another one on my thumb. They were both done by a surgeon in order to reattach my ruptured tendons.
The surgery was successful and I have full control of both my arm and hand.
The only thing left to remind me of that dreaded accident was the scars.
As soon as I showed both the recruiters my scars I kinda knew through their body language that I was done for so I kinda became apathetic about the rest of the process. I still got a set date for the final interview and I was informed by one of the recruiters that I might have to upload pictures of my scars. I feel really down right now and I do not even know if I should finish the rest of the recruitment process.
I was told by other applicants that I have just diminished my chances to get accepted by declaring and showing my scars.
I just want to know if anyone has a visible scar, got asked to send pictures of it and still got accepted by the emirates recruitment team.
I know this turned out to be a long post so thank you for your attention and time.

Don't give up - you have done well to get this far.... the scars are not the be all and end all. If the recruiters were not happy with you at the OD, they would have not invited you for interview. The EK medical team will look into it (if they have any concern and you are asked for photos) but also you have to declare them - not just for how visible they are (for some very visible scars, they might question what the injury was and would it affect your medical fitness) but also for identification purposes. Also, sometimes people don't declare tattoos etc. which can put them in a difficult position later when they are found at the medical stage... honesty is very important in cabin crew role. See how things go now and hopefully you will do well at the interview and if it doesn't work out, just try another airline in the Middle East...but as I said, don't give up!

I'm gonna see how things go on my FI, if I happen to be unsuccessful i'm gonna have them removed with a cosmetic surgery and reapply after six months.
Thank you for your kind words. Much love.
