Residence or Family Visa

Visa Services - New visa processing & renewals

The resident visa is valid for 3 years, and upon its expiry, one can renew it without any limitation on how many times it is renewed. If one has a resident visa, then he or she is entitled to permanent residence in the UAE. Besides, one is permitted to obtain a visa for immediate family members such as spouse and minor children. To maintain a resident visa, all one is required to do is enter the Emirates at least once in every six months. Violation of this rule may result into a visa block and, subsequently, the process of unblocking the visa will be entailing compliance with the procedure for its re-activation.

If an individual is a foreign national living in the territory of UAE on a Residence Visa, then he or she is allowed to bring his or her dependents along with the help of a Family Visa. However, everyone cannot bring the dependents along with him or her as a Family Visa for can only be issued for up to 3 years and can be renewed thirty days before the date of expiry.
