The UAE has announced that people with small houses can’t sponsor their families. Are they squeezing too hard?


August 21, 2008 12:32 by

The recent move by the government to only let people sponsor families if they have ‘proper accommodation’ does seem a bit harsh. With rising rents, most people are forced to stay in smaller places, and if they want to bring their families here, they will also be hoping to reduce costs.
The federal government has said that people will have to show tenancy contracts when they bring their families here or renew their family’s visas. The contracts, it says, can be in the names of individuals, their company names, or even those of close relatives.
So, even if you don’t have a big house, but your sister or brother has spacious accommodation, you can bring your family over. But what if your relative already has a big family staying with them? Will it still work?
While the rule is aimed at providing families with decent accommodation, specific guidelines seem to be lacking.
Your thoughts are welcome.
