What does dependent VISA stamping entail? What is the cost and how can I do it? What do you require and where should you do it?

All the Information you need

When you are required to sponsor dependents under you under a new work agreement, the process begins. Typically, the persons you can sponsor through this process are family members who rely on you for all of their daily needs. There are two different service kinds that fall under this procedure of renewing and applying for a new VISA, and they both follow essentially the same stages. The required costs and VISA term differ (One to three years). You can stamp a new VISA on the dependents once your own process is complete and you are qualified to sponsor them. This article describes the steps involved and how Amer Center will support them.

If the dependents have previously held a VISA, their application must be renewed. They will require a new VISA if they haven’t already done so. They will require an entry permit for the new VISA stamping. The only additional document required for a new Visa stamping as opposed to a renewal is the entry permit (Click here to observe the process).

The processes below apply to both renewing and applying for a new VISA. Ensure that you have successfully completed the emirates ID and medical processes (Click here to see the process). The dependent must provide their passport and the sponsor’s authentic Emirates ID.

Let’s respond to the remaining questions now that we have a better understanding of the procedure.
