Dh10,000 salary must for Filippinos to get affidavit of support for relatives visit visa

Salary Requirement for Dubai Relative Visit Visa Filipino

Filipino expatriates are now required to make earnings by at least Dh10,000 to obtain the supporting travel document for their family members who need visiting the UAE, according to the new policy rule implemented by the Philippine missions.

The new income or salary requirement for the 'affidavit of support and guarantee' (ASG) was part of an updated policy that took effect on August 24. The details about this update were available on the websites of the Philippine Consulate-General in Dubai and the Filippino Embassy in Abu Dhabi.

For a single expat who plan to sponsor a relative's UAE visit, he or she must show proof of the Dh10,000 monthly income. However, for a married couple, a combined income of Dh14,000 is accepted, the policy states. A family of four - either a husband and wife with two children or a single parent with three children - can present a total income of Dh18,000.

Previously, the salary requirement for this support document was only Dh3,500.

Expats sign the affidavit as a guarantee that they can support their relatives during their stay in the UAE. The travelling visitors usually present the document to immigration officials in Manila prior to boarding.

Though the ASG has sparked controversy in the past, Philippine authorities have explained that it was part of measures to combat human trafficking and illegal recruitment.

"An applicant can execute the affidavit to sponsor a relative only within the first and second degree of consanguinity or affinity," the policy added. This means the document can be issued only for an expat's parents, spouse, children, grandparents, siblings, grandchildren and in-laws.

Other requirements, for obtaining visit visa for relatives are following.

  • Proof of relationship
  • Proof of accommodation, and
  • Traveller's tourist visa
The above documents must also be submitted before travelling to UAE.
