United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi Strict on Dependent Visas

Dependents of work permit holders in Abu Dhabi are encouraged to submit supporting documents from Abu Dhabi for dependent applications. Dependent applications with supporting documents issued from Dubai are generally not being accepted by the authorities or are being asked for additional documents, for foreign nationals residing in one emirate, and working in another.

This is being seen on a case-by-case basis and is not policy, but companies and employees should be aware of the change.
