What is the criteria for sponsoring parents in the UAE?

In the UAE, one may sponsor residence visas for parents if he/she is drawing a monthly salary of Dh20,000 or above, or is having a minimum salary of Dh19,000 and accommodation provided by the employer. Further, residence visas have to be sponsored for both the parents together, and necessary documents have to be provided if the parents are divorced or one of the parents is deceased.

Additionally, a minimum insurance coverage of Dh600 must be obtained for each parent. Nevertheless, where a person is not able to meet the criteria for the minimum salary, he may approach the humanitarian section of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in the UAE, who may allow the sponsorship on special consideration upon analyzing all aspects of the application.
