Applying for a family visa in the UAE involves a series of steps and requirements. Here's a general guideline on how to apply for your family's visa in the UAE:

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The sponsor (applicant) must have a valid UAE residence visa.

  • The sponsor should have a minimum salary of AED 4,000 or AED 3,000 plus accommodation.

  • The sponsor must have a valid employment or professional status.

Required Documents:

  • Passport copies of the family members.

  • Passport-sized photographs of the family members.

  • Sponsor's employment contract or salary certificate.

  • Emirates ID card.

  • Marriage certificate (attested and translated if not in Arabic).

  • Birth certificates of children (attested and translated if not in Arabic).

  • Medical clearance certificate for family members above 18 years old.

  • Health insurance for each family member.

Medical Fitness Test:

  • Family members above 18 years old must undergo a medical fitness test at government-approved health centers in the UAE.

Application Process:

  • Visit the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in the emirate where you reside.

  • Submit the required documents and pay the application fee.

  • Once approved, you will receive an entry permit, allowing your family to enter the UAE.

  • After your family arrives in the UAE, they must undergo a medical fitness test.

  • Once the medical test is passed, you can proceed to complete the visa stamping process.

Visa Stamping:

  • After receiving the medical test results, visit the GDRFA to get the visa stamped on your family members' passports.

  • Pay the visa stamping fee.

  • The visa will typically be valid for one to three years, depending on various factors.

Emirates ID Registration:

  • Once the visa is stamped, your family members must apply for the Emirates ID card through the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC).

Health Insurance:

  • It's mandatory to provide health insurance for your family members. Ensure that they are covered under a valid health insurance policy.

Visa Renewal:

  • Family visas must be renewed before they expire. The renewal process is similar to the initial application process.
