Family Visas

If you are a foreign national living in the UAE on a Residence Visa, then you are allowed to bring your dependents with you through a UAE Family Visa. However, not everyone can bring their dependents along as there are certain requirements that have to be met.



Requirements to Sponsor Someone for a UAE Family Visa

To be able to sponsor family members to the UAE, you must fulfill the following conditions:

  • Male expatriates must have a minimum salary of AED 4,000 per month or AED 3,000 per month plus accommodation
  • Female expatriates must have a minimum monthly salary of AED 6,000 or AED 4,000 plus accommodation
What Professions are Eligible for Family Visa in UAE?

As of 2019, there are no specific professions that are eligible to sponsor their family members for a UAE Family Visa. Any foreign worker who meets the salary requirements can bring their family members to the UAE.

Who Can you Sponsor for a UAE Family Visa?

It is easier for a male expatriate to sponsor his family members to the UAE than it is for a woman. If you are a man who is on the UAE on a Residence Visa, you can bring the following family members on a Family Visa to the UAE:

  • Your wife. If you are a Muslim resident, you may also sponsor two wives but you must meet certain terms set out by the GDRFA.
  • Your sons. You can sponsor your sons only if they are 18 or under. If the sons are over 18, you can still sponsor them but only if they are students, and only up to the age of 25 as per newly amendment rule . Additionally, if the sons are over 18, they must enter the UAE at least once every six months if studying abroad otherwise their UAE visa will be canceled.
  • Your daughters. You can sponsor your daughters only if they are unmarried.
  • Your parents. You can also sponsor your parents, provided you meet the following conditions:
    • You sponsor both parents unless one of them has passed away
    • You pay a deposit of AED 2,500 as a guarantee for each parent— make sure to check with the corresponding immigration department as this fee may change.
    • You get your parents a medical insurance policy
    • You have a monthly salary of AED 20,000 or a AED 19,000 plus a two-bedroom accommodation
  • Your stepchildren. You may also sponsor your stepchildren if you get a written No Objection Certificate from the biological parent. The visa for stepchildren is valid for one year and renewable.
