WHAT IS EMIRATE’S FAMILY VISA?
FOR A UAE FAMILY VISA, WHO MAY YOU SPONSOR?
- It's your wife: If you live in the United States and are a Muslim, you can sponsor two wives, but you must follow the GDRFA's requirements.
- They're your boys: If your sons are under the age of 18, they can only be sponsored. If your kids are past the age of 18, you can still sponsor them, but only if they are students and under the age of 21. If the boys are over the age of 18, their UAE visa will be withdrawn if they do not visit the UAE at least once every six months while studying abroad.
- Your daughters, specifically: You can only sponsor your daughters if they are single.
