Bringing Your Family to the UAE: A Guide to Family Sponsorship Visas

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) offers a family sponsorship visa program that allows residents to bring their families to live with them in the country. This can be a great option for expats who want to be joined by their spouses, children, and even parents. At Trivup, we provide a detailed guide to help you navigate the process of obtaining a Family Sponsored Visa, making it easy to reunite with your loved ones.

Who Can Sponsor a Family Member?

The good news is that most expats with a valid residence visa can now sponsor their families. There are no longer profession restrictions, but there is a minimum salary requirement.

Required Documents

When applying for a Family Sponsored Visa, you will need to submit the following documents:

Sponsor’s Documents

·       Passport copy
·       UAE residency visa copy
