a tourist visa is valid for 30days with 10 days grace so the visa is not granted for 40 days, you can then do a visa run to extend for another 30 days or once you can go to immigration to pay to have it extended. there are rules of minimum salary etc for sponsoring a family. if allowed it depends on the timescale from company and immigration, it could take a week it could take a month it could take 3 months? everyone is different, different circumstances. in order to get a residence visa you have to go through the medical process and emirates id process, that all can take time.

Thank you for the reply..I hope to get the residence entry permit within 2 days..
hmmmmm... think that may well be pushing it...! they can do it quickly if they "want to" tho. u have to do the medical and then go somewhere else for the emirates id..... it doesnt all happen in immigration.
