Answer: It is understood that your wife is a pharmacist drawing a salary of Dh7,000 per month. Further, she intends to sponsor you and your kid's residence visa in the UAE.

Pursuant to your query, a wife may sponsor her husband and children if she is earning a basic salary of Dh3,000 plus accommodation or a total salary of Dh4,000 without accommodation if she is a teacher or in any role in the medical sector. However, you may contact General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs for the requirement as their requirements may change from time to time.

KNOW THE LAW: A wife may sponsor her husband and children if she is earning a basic salary of Dh3,000 plus accommodation or a total salary of Dh4,000 without accommodation if she is a teacher or in any role in the medical sector.
