What is VISA Stamping for dependents? How to do it & how much is it? Where to do it and what all do you need?

All the Information you need

This process happens after you have received a new employment agreement and you have to sponsor dependents under you. Family members who depend on you for their daily requirements are usually the people who you can sponsor under this process. There are two types of services that come under this renewal and applying for a new VISA process, and they have almost the same steps. They vary in fees to be paid and duration of VISA (One to three years). Once you have completed your own process and are eligible to sponsor dependents you can stamp a new VISAs on the dependents. This article highlights the process behind it and how Amer Center will help in this process.

If the dependents have had a VISA before then they are up for a renewal process. However, if they haven’t, then they are going to need a new VISA.  For the new VISA stamping they will need an entry permit. The entry permit (Click here to see the process) is the only additional document that will be needed for a new Visa stamping compared to a renewal.

The following steps are for both renewal and a new VISA. Make sure that you have finished your medical and emirates ID processes too (Click here to see the process). The dependent will have to submit their passport along with the sponsors original Emirates ID.

Now that we have understood the process let us answer the rest of the questions.
