How to get a Dependent Visa in Dubai?

There are no specific procedures for applying for a dependent Visa in the UAE, just the same procedure as applying for your own (visa application formalities). In this case too, just like an individual visa, there are eligibility criteria that all applicants must meet.

To ensure that anyone who is a prestigious holder of a UAE visa can support their dependents, they must meet the minimum wage criteria to enter in to dependent visa matters. Currently, men working in the UAE can sponsor their immediate family members, such as wife and children, if they have a minimum wage of 4000 dirhams or 3000 dirhams and accommodation.

When applying for a spouse visa in Dubai, or indeed any other dependent visa in the UAE, you must provide several relevant pieces of documentation. This may include:

  • A copy of your company license
  • Birth certificate
  • Colour copy of passport of sponsor and dependant
  • Emirates ID card copy of sponsor
  • Marriage certificate
  • Salary certificate of sponsor
  • UAE residence visa copy of sponsor
  • Visa application
