Hi, I am very new to this so please forgive me if I am asking questions when they have possibly been answered elsewhere! My husband is coming out to work in December and the rest of the family will be joining him next year.
I realise that once he is there, he will be able to find out the answers to most of our questions anyway, BUT, I really would appreciate it, if anyone knows anything about this issue,if they could tell me a little of what they know!
My eldest son who is 22, and still at home, would like to come and live with us there, is there likely to be a problem with him getting a residency visa, as he is going to be coming out with no employment? I`m not entirely sure if finding work is going to be easy either, as he is not highly qualified? My husband`s employers are sorting everything out for us and know how many children we have etc, but I am really worried that my sons age is going to be an issue. Thanks for reading this and any info would be invaluable!

Your son's age will be an issue as he is over 18. If you had a daughter it will not be an issue and don't know why this is the case. Thought of making my son join my husband when he was undecided in going to Uni this year and he is 18 now and found out that he will have to have a separate visa and not be included on my husband's work visa. Found this out of gulfnews on line

As Rj.uk said, this is a big issue. We are sitting here with our 16.5 year old son worrying about what we will do after his 18th Birthday.

In terms of work - unless your son has a bachelor's degree, and you have said he isn't highly qualified - then he will likely only be able to get a low paid job, £50-£100 per week for full time (50 hours or so). He may strike it lucky and find something better paid, but it's all about making connections and knowing the right people, difficult when you are new in the country.

We have looked into ways of keeping our son here and the only alternative we can come up with is for us to start a business in a free zone and give him employment there.

I have a friend who's adult son is out with them, he has to do a visa run every 30 days to keep renewing his visit visa.

Sorry can't give you better news - good luck with whatever you decide.
