Once your business is up and running in the UAE and you as the business owner have your residence visa, you are then in a position to get a UAE residence visa for a family member or members, or those you hire for your household (for example, maid, driver, nanny). These residence visas are known as UAE dependent visas, and in order to obtain one, the sponsor – a current UAE resident – must be earning at least the salary minimum as dictated individually by each emirate. The process of applying for the residence visa – which remains valid for a period of anywhere from one to three years – is incredibly simple, and made up of four stages: entry permit, status adjustment, medical fitness test and Emirates ID registration and visa stamping. In this Virtuzone UAE Business Setup Guide we answer all the key questions surrounding UAE residence visas for your dependents.
