UAE Family Visa Requirements

Applying for Family Visa in United Arab Emirates can be easy and simple if all the necessary requirements are fulfilled. The UAE has taken good care of individual needs and has provided the expats with a number of visas – business, freelancer, dependent or employed.

Each visa has different needs. Below are the requirements for a family visa.

Many people come to other nations for work and leave their wife and children behind. Male residents who work in the United Arab Emirates receive a minimum salary of AED 4,000 per month and live in a one-bedroom place or more can sponsor members of their family.

Process of Family Visa for UAE

Now, depending on the place (mainland of Dubai or free zone) where the sponsor is currently working or status of their visa, the members of the family are issued visas for 2 to 3 years.

Under the regulations of Dubai, the expat employees are issued a residence visa for 2-3 years while on the other hand, the expat’s investors or employers are each given a 3-year residence visa. Thus, the sponsored resident gets an opportunity to stay for the same period of time as their sponsor. Remember to renew your visa prior to the expiry date to avoid overstay penalties.
