How to sponsor your parents in UAE
Published on December 8, 2019 at 18.02
An expat employee can sponsor his parents for a year-long stay by paying a deposit as a guarantee for each parent as stipulated by the respective immigration department.
An expat cannot sponsor only one of his parents. He needs to sponsor both parents together. He also needs to provide proof that he is their sole support and that there is no one to take care of them back home.
If one of the parents has passed away or if the parents are divorced, he has to show the related official documents as justification to sponsor only one of his parents.
To sponsor parents, the expat resident must earn the minimum salary stipulated and obtain a medical insurance policy for parents with the minimum coverage stipulated for each, to be renewed each year.
According to the website of Dubai government (DNRD), Dubai stipulates a minimum salary of Dh20,000 or a monthly pay of Dh19,000 plus a two-bedroom accommodation to sponsor parents' visa. Source: www.government.ae
