What is the change? The UAE has put new restrictions on female applicants seeking to sponsor their children for residence visas.
What does the change mean? Only women who are widowed or divorced, or whose husband’s monthly salary is less than 4,000 dirhams are eligible to sponsor their children’s residence visas. This rule does not apply to female employees who already sponsor their husband’s residence visa.
Analysis & Comments: The policy is currently in place in Dubai and is likely to be applied in the other emirates. Employers whose expatriate employees are affected by the new policy should work with their immigration advisor to find alternatives.
