How can an expat sponsor his family in Dubai

If you are an expat and thinking to live together with your child, or your spouse or any of your family members, then the first thing you need to do is apply for a family visa Dubai. But before you sponsor your family member(s), you yourself need to have a valid Dubai residency visa. You will need to get an entry permit for your family members, which allows them to enter in UAE. The status from an entry permit holder will be modified to a resident visa holder when the procedure for obtaining a family visa is completed.

Depending on the type of your work, and labor contract, the family visa for your family members will be issued for either one, two, or three years. 

(Note: according to new family visa rules of UAE of 2019, job title for the sponsor is not necessary)

Sponsoring your wife and child

An expat can sponsor the residence visa for his wife, as per the guidelines and requirements set by the GDRFA. You would need an authentic marriage certificate which is duly translated into Arabic by a certified translator.  

You can sponsor your daughter only if she is unmarried. In the case of a son, you can sponsor him only if he is below 18 years. He can be sponsored beyond 18 years of age only if he is continuing his studies in UAE. You would have to provide proof for that and he will be granted visa until the age of 21 only on a yearly basis, which shall be renewed until his studies are completed. 

According to the new rule, a student who graduate from their educational institutes like universities or secondary schools, or complete the age of 18, will be granted a residence visa for one year that can be renewed for another year from the date of graduation or on completing 18 years.

You will not have to place any bank deposits. The fee for such a visa would be 100 AED when issued for the first time, and renewal. However, you would have to submit your child’s attested graduation certificates from universities or schools, within the UAE or abroad.

You can also sponsor your stepchildren, but you will have to pay a deposit for that along with a NOC (no-objection certificate) from the biological parent of the child. The validity of such a visa will be a year, which can be renewed annually.

Documents required for obtaining a visa for wife and children

  • Attested passport copies of wife and child, which is valid for at least six months.
  • Coloured photos of your wife and child.
  • Medical clearance certificate for your wife and child (if he or she is over 15).
  • A copy of your employment or company contract.

Ladder cable trays

Ladder cable trays are commonly used cable tray wiring system installations for intermediate to long support spans. These cable trays come with no covers which allow free flow of air across the cables. This also enables this heat produced in the cable’s conductors to escape efficiently. This makes the conductor fixed in the cables of a cable tray wiring system maintain maximum operating temperature and prohibit premature ageing of the tray systems.

Ventilated trough cable trays

As the name suggests, these trays provide more ventilation to the wiring system. One of the most appealing reasons for choosing the ventilated trays over the ladder type trays is their design.

Although the support provided by ventilated cable trays to the cables is more than that done by the ladder cable trays, the additional support is not noteworthy. To be more specific the additional support doesn’t have much influence on the cable service record.

Solid Bottom Cable Trays

The major disadvantage of selecting solid bottom is moisture is easily built up in the cable trays. This can be corrected by building 1/4 inch drain holes in the bottom of these cable trays.
