Sponsor parents for a Dubai residence visa

Sponsoring parents is not guaranteed, it's at the discretion of the UAE immigration department, and approval conditions might vary depending on which emirate you live in. This information is for Dubai but should be similar for other emirates.

It is possible to sponsor your parents, and/or parents-in-law, for a residence visa in Dubai and the UAE. Note that a residence visa is not the same as a family UAE visit visa. The residence visa process involves 2 steps. First obtaining an entry permit, second step is to convert entry permit to a residence visa after parents arrive in the UAE. New UAE visa rules from July 2008 have the following requirements and restrictions for sponsoring parents.
