Read updated Rules with regard to sponsoring parents here (Updated 14-11-2013)

Most of the expatriates have their parents in the home country who would like to relocate to UAE. A UAE resident can apply for the visa for their parents to live in the UAE. Most of the parents in their old age would love to be with their children or grand children.

Eligibility to apply for UAE residence visa for parents

To be eligible to apply for UAE residence visa for parents, the sponsor or UAE resident expatriate must be holding valid UAE residence visa and have a minimum salary of AED 6,000 with accommodation or AED 7,000 without accommodation. This visa is renewable every year.

The new regulations mention that both the parents need to be sponsored, ie both your father and mother need to be sponsored and you must furnish the proof that you are the sole provider and that there is no one to take care of them in your home country. If one of your parents is diseased or is separated, then a valid and attested proof is necessary for the same. A medical insurance is a must with a minimum coverage of AED 600 per annum.

Documents required for UAE entry visa for parents:

Duly Typed application form at a registered typing centre.

• Passport copy of parents & 1 photo each.
• Proof of relationship is to be obtained from your embassy/consulate attesting both relationship and that you are sole provider for your parents.

In addition, you require a 2 bed room apartment along with the electricity and water bill. The tenancy contract has to be stamped at Land Department in Dubai and respective departments.

  • Thank you very much for your kind information – Could please explain about the status in Abu Dhabi, whether above said information is applicable in AUH also – Kindly confirm

    • The process is similar in all emirates but there might be additional documents such as attested tenancy contract and utility bills that you might need to produce.

  • HI, My parents dont get along well with eachother and my mom is quite lonely at home. I have siblings but they are not well to do and live in smaller apaprtments. and finally, she wishes to stay with us in Dubai rather than anywhere else.

    I wish to only sponsor my mother, is it possible? Is it feasible even to try getting a residence VISA or should I stick to longterm (3 months) commercial visa’s.

    is it possible to get things done by hiring an agent?

    • It will be a very difficult task to sponsor only one of your parents. You need to sponsor both your parents if they are alive. This is not allowed under parent sponsorship. Also I am not sure whether long term visa is available for parents. You may get only 1 year visa. On the other hand if your parents are divorced or separated, you need documentary proof for this.

  • Hi, if parents are old is beyond 65 yes age , is it still possible to sponsor them..any other problems in this case.
    Is health insurance mandatory and available for citizens older than 65 yes age

  • Hai , i am working in abudhabi AED9000 salary . we submvit here residence visa for mother . we have all documents , she is widow.
    we tried more 6 times immigaration , they saying stop parents visa . we took 2 times 90 days visit and show the immigation people all doucuments . He didn’t check my files. what’s new documents they need , where i go get a visa

    • If the authorities have rejected your repeated request, there is not much I could advise. Excuse me on this.

  • Hi deepak, Am a housewife under my husband’s sponcer ship. My mother is a widow can I sponcer her? Or does my husband need to do it? He earns well above the 6000 aed.

  • Dear Sir,

    We have been sponsored by our daughter and granted a residency visa since December 2012. It was quite difficult for us to get them and I must say they were given almost on compassionate ground. We are holding British passport and could stay here unconditional for 30 days Because our daughter is our only child, we depend on her financially and psychologically, therefore, we would like to live with her as long as she works in Abu Dhabi. We would like to ask your expertise advice that if it is possible for us to renew our residency visa this December and the chance and procedures for such renewal.

    Many thanks
    Hugh & Ada

    • Hi Hugh and Ada, the question you have posed is a tough one. I Certainly can not advice you on whether you could renew your visas. Everything actually depends on the department officers. If your visa is rejected for some reason, make a strong case and approach the department manager or higher authority. Your daughter must prove that only she can take care of you and you do not have any other children. She must have a minimum 2 bedroom house with a decent salary. In most of the cases, your visa should be approved as your daughter is the only support you have. Renewal procedures are same as a fresh application. I wish you all the best and pray that you get your visa renewed.

  • Hi,

    I am holding Sharjah residence visa and wish to bring my mother (she is widow) on residence visa. What are formalities and documents required to obtain the same. Meanwhile, I heard that Naturalization dept has stopped to issuing residence visa for parents. Let me know what is the current status.
    Thank u.

    • 5,536.69 Approximately. It should be paid before you sign the cancellation papers as it is written on it. if you have got any loan it will be directly credited to your bank account. do confirm this with your HR or a competent lawyer. Details here are just a guidance.

  • I think in Abu Dhabi they are simply refusing the parents visa. I have personally visted the authority office and they clearly say, “Now not possible”. Means previously it was allowed but now not possible…. I wish some one correct me..

          • actually i want to ask that is there any Restrictions about Designation to apply mother or parests visa ? someone said that only manager level person they can apply for paresnts visa if your are receptionist or clerk you can’t apply for paresnts visa is it true ?

    • es there are certain formalities in each emirates to sponsor family. For sure you need 2 bhk aptز i dont think you can apply visa for your mother…they need 2 bhk flat and salary 10K.

  • In Sharjah, i heard that there are occupation restriction to sponsor a child. What is the category as i want to sponsor my new born child? my salary is 4700 as Computer Operator Visa and working in Sharjah.

  • Hi Mr.Deepak i have a resident visa issued in dubai.can i apply a fathers visa for my daughter in sharjah municipality?because im staying in sharjah near the immigration office so it will be easier for me.

    • No you can not sponsor visa for your daughter in Sharjah when you have Dubai visa. You will need to apply it through Dubai-DNRD(Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department). Visa sponsorship is possible within the respective emirates.

  • Hi Deepak, I have just received a job offer from a multinational company located in Sharjah. Currently I have 6 years of experience after graduation. The offer includes a monthly salary of 5000 AED (Basic 2800, Housing allowance 2000, and meal allowance 200)plus 22 days of paid vacation along with health and life insurance and annual return air ticket. Can I get vegetarian food easily in Sharjah? If yes how much it costs? 2000 AED is sufficient for housing allowance?
    My current pay in India is 25000 INR and monthly saving 18000 INR.

    For those who lived in Sharjah, what would you think of this order considering the cost of living and the level of experience I have? I really would like to go but cannot decide if this is sufficient for a decent living.
    Please reply with genuine answer. Thanks a lot in advance!

    • Thank you Amit for contacting me.
      AED 5000 is considered a decent salary for bachelor.

      You should consider below points:
      1. Accommodation in Sharjah is not as expensive as in Dubai. But getting a 1Bedroom can be a challenge for bachelors. The rents per annum can range from 20K above for a decent one.
      2. IF you share accommodation you can live a comfortable life for AED 2000.
      3.Transport-Is the company providing transport? IF not additional charges will be applicable.

      Company is supposed to bear visa costs of employees. Emirates id is an additional one time cost of AED300.
      But let me warn you that there are temptations to spend here on electronics and other luxuries. If you can control your urges, you can save 3000 per month easily.

      If you feel that this is a good company, you may go ahead. Congratulations!

  • Hi Deepak, firstly congratulations on the great advice that you have been sharing, it’s indeed heartening to know that atleast someone can provide appropriate guidance. I am wanting to sponsor my parents to Dubai , I have an approximate salary of 14 k , however the tenancy contract( 2 bhk ) is on my husbands name… Is this acceptable ? Appreciate your advise and thanks in advance..

    • From my discussion with few people, Immigration may consider your request. But the requirement as per law is to have tenancy contract in the name of the sponsor for the 2BHK. Do visit a higher authority at Immigration before processing your application. Principally as I informed, tenancy contract need to be in the name of the sponsor.

  • Hi Deepak,

    I wish to sponsor my resident Visa for my parents. They are retired. I qualify all the criteria of salary and 2 bed room appartment.

    Queries:

    2. Where and how do I apply for the Visa
    3. Their names appear in my passport, do I still need to get an affidavit from the Indian Counsulate in Dubai that they are my parents.
    4. Once they get a resident Visa, can we travel to Oman for tourist purposes, or is there a minimum time that needs to be spent in Dubai before traveling to any of the other GCC nations.

    Appreciate your advice.

        • to sponsor you need to have attested marriage certificate. However, in certain cases, immigration may consider visa. Please check with DNRD or respective departments

  • Hi Deepak,

    Firstly ,thank you,your blog is very helpful.I recently got a job and a decent salary to support my family.so I applied for my wife’s visa(spouse sponser) and I got the pink visa.we are awaiting her medical certificate and her emirates id application is done.I wanted to know what further papers WILL they ask for stamping the passport.Do I again have to submit my tenancy contract and so on.I’am asking this coz my landlord gave me a support paper called tauteek(excuse me the spelling error) but that paper has expiry date of 2nd sept ,so by the time I wait for daman card to be issued by my company ,it will surpass the expiry date and will that be an issue during STAMPING.So its really important to know if i again have to submit my tenancy contract.

    thank you,
    Vipul

    • dont think so…..they will ask again for all the documents. However, you may try to seek information from higher authorities.

  • Hi Deepak,

    Nice information, actually i am struggling to get my parents visa.
    I have 11000 salary and applied for parents visa last week.

    after 3 days received a call from committee and they said we are rejecting your application bcoz you have 2 kids and 2 bhk flat, you need 3 bhk flat as per family size.

    Now, i thought to go for 3 bhk flat and reapply, so i called on same number, and now he said, your parent’s age is below 60, which means they are not your dependent, they can take care themselves, so even if u get 3 bhk, we won’t approve your visa 🙁

    any tips may help me, do they have only 1 committee and same person in charge? or if i will try with other office, there will be other committee and they may approve my visa??

    thanks,

  • Dear Deepak thanks a lot for providing detailed information on the procedure of sponcering parrents resident VISA in UAE. This information will be a very helpful to me. I wanted to have one clarification from you which is on the salary, as you have mentioned it should be 7000 p/m without company accomodation however i have heard but not sure how much true it is that the monthly salary should be 10000. Please advice on this.

    • Rules are changing day by day for sponsoring family visa. Please check in immigration directly as I do not want to create confusion for you.

  • Hi Deepak,

    i am trying to sponsor my widow mother since last 6 months on a residence visa in abu dhabi… i qualify on all aspects of visa requirements i.e salary, 2bhk flat etc. immigration officers are not ready to take application even. i am seriously worried as i cannot leave my mother alone back home in india.

    your guidance to get this done would be of great help.

    Regards,
    Sapan

    • I am afraid I am not able to provide any reply as this matter is beyond any suggestion from my side. Only the respective authority can help.

  • Hi Deepak, your blog is very helpful. I am the only child and my parents are both above 65. My salary is 7416 Dhs per month and my position is Chief Accountant / Administration. Recently our PRO told me I need at least 10000 Dhs salary after checking at typing centers. I have a tenancy contract for a 2BHK and my two children are already sponsored by me. if I prove that I am the sole provider for my parents and do the deposits / med insurance stuff, what are my chances of sponsoring my parents, especially since I have already sponsored my kids, have only a 2BHK, and heard things are tough for a woman where sponsorship is concerned.

    • Hi Sunita, these rules are dynamic. You need to check directly with higher officials at immigration on matters of visa.

  • i want to sponser my mother in law and my salary is within the above limits but i am staying in 1bhk with son and wife , will i be able to sponser my mother in law.

    • Dear Mihir,

      Di you get visa or not yet ? My application they’ve rejected on 10-Oct-2012. Moreover I think again they’ve increased the fees + deposit (the new requirements sheet from them shows Dhs.5000/-).

  • Hi Deepak,

    As per the law inorder to sponsor your spouse you need to have the tenancy contarct in the sponsorer name, could you please also advice is there any salary criteria as well ??

    would appreciate your help

  • Dear Deepak,

    The latest requirements are slightly different, especially in the salary. You need to have a minimum basic salary of Dhs. 10,000/- to apply for parents residency visa. The requirements as per the DNRD brocher is given below –

    1) Passport copy of the sponsor & sponsored.
    2) 2. Affidavit letter from consulate mentioning that the sponsor will take care of the parents and providing all details about his brothers and sisters (number of brothers and sisters, current occupation of each, where they living…)
    3) Attested Labour contract or Salary certificate from the Govt authorities (like Freezone) with a minimum salary for Dhs. 10,000 or Dhs. 9,000 + accomodation).
    4) The sponsor has to apply for both (father and mother) except Divorce or Death cases (Attested divorce or death certificate should required) or letter from the consulate / ministry of foreign affairs.
    5) Parents and parents-in-law cannot be sponsored at the same time on residence visa
    6. Last 3 months bank statements.
    7. Tenancy contract attested from Land department (should be minimum 2 BHK)
    8. DEWA bill for the last month
    9. Dhs. 2000/- security deposit (after approval only) per person (But as per the customer care, it is Dhs. 5,000/-).
    10. Emirates ID Card (though not mentioned in the broucher, it is necessary now).

    Other notes –

    1) Visa fees was Dhs. 250/- per person (+ typing + some stamp fees etc…), whereas now the customer care says, it is decided by the DNRD !!
    2) There is no time frame for getting residency visa, though it is generally said that it’ll take 1-2 weeks.
    3) The decision of the residency visa is taken by a committee and that decision is final and will not be reconsidered / changed, once rejected.
    4) It is also said by the customer care that even if we meet all requirements, it is not necessary to get the visa and also they may not give reasons / justifications for the rejection.
    5) Once applied, the money is not reimbursed (sometimes even the original documents like affidavits are not returned).
    6) Also there is a rumor that currently they are not giving residence visa or there is high level of rejection / filtering.

    I’ve applied last year and got rejected due to the basis salary requirement, though I was falling short by only 500 dhs. I’m going to apply once again now, in another 1-2 days time and shall update you.

    • Thank you very much Binoy. Appreciate it. Could you write this as an article and send to my email. I will publish it in your name in this site.my email: deepak[at]machado.ws

    • Hi Binoy,
      Can you give me some update regarding the Affidavit letter. Typing center has given me the info that i have to provide Affidavit letter from my country that i am the sole provider of my parents and need to mention all my brother ,sis. family info.
      MY question is , how to get this Affidavit letter? Is there any source that i can check the content of document.?
      Also my parents name mentioned on passport so why there is need to prove it again? is it very difficult for me to get this affidavit letter from my country.? need you kind suggestion
      Regards,
      Dhanraj

      • I am helpless and I have no idea n this area. I guess, best would be to check directly with the Indian Consulate in Dubai or Abu Dhabi call centre.

    • @ Deepak – I’ll mail you the same ASAP. An update on the matter, they are rejecting the applications by saying some reasons (or without reason), even if you meet all criteria and I’m one among those unlucky guys whoz application got rejected on 10th Oct 2012.

      @ Dhanraj – Getting the affidavit (in Dubai) is very easy. You just need to go to the Indian consulate and get an application, fill it and hand it over to them. They’ll give you the affidavit on the spot, with a waiting period of 30-40 mins. You can also download the form from the consulate site (http://www.cgidubai.com/category/consular-services/attestation-services-consular-services/), which will give you an idea that what are the details you need to fill in. I’ve done my attestation twice, once last year and then around 2-3 months back. That time it was directly done @ the consulate, but I heard now that is also been outsourced to some VFS global or so. It is mentioned in the above given consulate link and I shall update you if I get more details from somebody who’ve done it after that change.

Since i reside in Sharjah, can my husband sponsor her with his Dubai visa. 2. I could not find the content of Affidavit letter to be provided. Can you please send me a sample letter. Also it has to be attested by Indian embassy or UAE embassy in UAE or in India? Am bit confused.Thank you for your help in advance.

  • Hi Deepak,

    I am trying to sponsor my mother in law on resident, I fulfill all the requirement aspects, My application was rejected by Dubai DNRD last week. they said sorry we issue only parent visa not parent in law visa.

    any suggestion or help on this.

    • Residency law is dynamic and it could be is a new law. I do not have much to suggest you as it entirely depends on the DNRD authorities.

  • hello deepak, i need ur help am asking about obtaining a visit visa for 30 days for my aunt(father side) as i need her urgently to help me in post delivery ..the thing that am on my husband’s visa, can he sponsor her? what are the documents needed and the details please? thank u in advance

    • If you are on husband’s sponsership you cannot sponsor anyone. However, I suggest getting her here on a tourist visa from a travel agency. May be a better option than your husband applying.

  • Sir,

      • Deepak, the DEWA bill is under our landlord’s name. The enancy is under my name. Can we keep the DEWA under his name and just get a letter of consent from him saying he’s allowed us to use it?

        • I do not think this is allowed. The landlord might need to give a letter that the DEWA bill is billed to him. You better seek clarification from immigration department.
