The Cabinet decision was approved earlier this year.
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) announced on Sunday that the new family sponsorship policy for UAE expats comes into effect on July 14.
The Cabinet Decision No. 30 for year 2019 regarding expats who want to bring their families in UAE was approved earlier this year.
According to the new policy, not the expat worker’s profession/position but their net income would determine if they are eligible to sponsor the family or not.
In the statement issued today, ICA added that male and female expats – who work in UAE – can bring their family (spouse and children under-18 children and unmarried women), if he earns a monthly salary of Dh4,000 or Dh3,000 plus accommodation provided by his company.
