The UAE Cabinet has approved a new rule which means expats can now sponsor their families based on salary, rather than profession.
Amendments to an earlier resolution means your income will be assessed, as opposed to previously when a managerial title was needed to sponsor a family to come to the UAE.
“Cabinets decision to allow foreign workers to bring their families to the UAE will achieve family stability,” according to Wam.ae.
The decision “will improve the family lives and social ties of private sector workers and will increase productivity, support the national economy, and improve the performance of workers within a comprehensive environment that will integrate the entire community,” according to Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation.
