Father sponsor daughter

Postby shawarma » 02 Mar 2009, 15:01

Hello Ronald and welcome to the Dubai forums :).

If you have documents that clarify she is your daughter then you should be able to sponsor her if she is unmarried (I don't know what age restriction there is). There may be a minimum salary requirement of 4000 or 5000 dhs per month. You could check with the DNRD in Dubai to make sure you have everything you need. What I'm not clear on is whether or not you were married when your daughter was born. If yes, then that should be fine. If not, then it may be difficult. In which case you could just try and see if you are asked for a marriage certificate or not. Let us know what happens :).

Unmarried father sponsoring daughter in Dubai

Postby shawarma » 03 Mar 2009, 10:55

What's important is whether or not you were married at the time your daughter was born, not your marriage status now. If you were married at the time then you should be able to sponsor your daughter (even if you are divorced now). If you were not married, then it's difficult, at least, since it is not legal for children to be born out of wedlock in the UAE (unmarried mothers who give birth in the UAE usually end up in jail). Parents having different surnames on the birth certificate in itself won't be a problem since it's not uncommon for married couples to have different surnames, especially in Arab society.

If / when you apply to the DNRD for a residence visa for your daughter, they may ask for evidence that you were married at the time of her birth. Or not. I don't know, since a marriage certificate is not in the list of required documents for family visas according to the DNRD website. I have heard of single unmarried parents sponsoring their children (who were born outside the UAE) but that was very second hand information and may be inaccurate. All I can suggest is that you either phone the DNRD helpline and ask, or just start the application process and see how far you get (and let us know how you get on :)) ... or perhaps an unmarried parent sponsoring their son or daughter in Dubai will read this and reply with first-hand information ...

DNRD website wrote:Residence permits for expatriate families in UAE

Required Documents:
  • Prepaid application form
  • 2 photographs of each sponsored person.
  • Original entry permit of each sponsored person.
  • Original passport of each sponsored person.
  • Copy of security deposit payment receipt (AED 5000) when sponsoring the parents and second-degree relatives.
  • Original copy of valid medical certificate (for those who are over 18 years old).
  • Copy of the sponsor's employment contract or salary certificate, provided that his salary shall not be less than AED. 4000 or AED. 3000+accommodation.
  • Copy of the sponsor's valid residence permit.
