UAE Visa - sponsor parents in UAE
As per the new residence visa rules the expatriates who has salary less than Dh20,000 will not be eligible to sponsor their parents on residence visa in the UAE.

The new visa ruling requires applicants to provide the proof of either having a minimum salary of Dh20,000 or a monthly payslip of Dh19,000 plus a two-bedroom accommodation. This new development has arised concern for residents who was here for a long period.

This will disallow low scale salary holders from getting their mother or father permanently to the UAE.

Earlier rules regarding Parent Sponsorship

According to earlier visa rules which was in place until a few weeks ago, expatriates with a proof of Dh10,000 salary or Dh9,000 salary per month plus accommodation was able to sponsor their parents on a permanent basis.

The minimum salary clause is updated in the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs new list of requirements for those seeking to obtain residence visa for their parents under ‘Humanitarian Cases’. The rule is issued by the Ministry of Interior and will be applicableall over UAE.
Before this rule the actual requirement was Dh7,000 or Dh6,000 plus accommodation. As the current rules the residents wanting to sponsor their parents should also submit the proof that they are living in a two bedroom apartment.

The tenancy contract should be officially attested in the Municipality or Ejari in Dubai. Similarly, the labour contract which has the proof of salary must be attested by the Ministry of Labour.
The sponsor must also pay a security deposit of Dh2,000 per parent after getting approval for sponsorship from the special committee that handles Humanitarian Cases.

Apart from these, UAE expats must also provide the letter to prove that their parents are entirely dependent on the sponsor and that there is no one to take care of them back home. This has to be certified by the concerned embassy or consulate of the sponsor’s home country.

It’s not clear about the status of parents who are already in the UAE on residence visas. As per the gulf news report no comments was available from DNRD.
