The husband has to earn a minimum of AED 3000 with accommodation or AED 4000 without accommodation in Dubai. If it is the wife who is sponsoring the husband she must belong to one of the two categories as per the law which has two different salary bracket. If the wife is a teacher, medical professional or engineer she belongs to the basic category and she may sponsor a visa to her husband with a salary of 3000 with accommodation or 4000 without accommodation. On the other hand, if her job falls in the other category the minimum salary limit goes up to 8000 and the other processes remain the same as a basic category. The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs Dubai (GDRFA or DNRD) will verify and cross check these conditions before the requests are processed.
