A family visa is required if you are entering the UAE with family members or inviting them here. This visa allows you to sponsor your parents, spouse, and children under the age of 18. If you are employed in the UAE, you will most likely be able to provide visas for your dependents with some requirements. The mandate allows foreign residents of any gender to sponsor family members, such as the spouse, children aged under 18 as well as unmarried daughters to stay in the UAE as long as the sponsor’s income (wife’s or husband’s) is at least 4000-4500 AED required.
