we did for my mom, last year, but we did a bit cheeky, we did not say that its mom, , because of all the paperwork, we state on application form FRIEND visiting. + we provide salary slip from my hubbys work, copy passport of mom. that's it. went to immigration put the deposit, dont remember how much, but i believe during DSF no need. visa was about 150, less than 200 dirhams. she is from Kirghizia, so it might be a bit different with US citizens. hope my info helps

If she's US citizen then no need to get visa. If she stays for more than a month then need extension when she get there. That's what I will be doin when I visit my sister there in 2 weeks.. Good luck!

If the family member is a US citizen (or from the elite 33 countries) it should not be an issue and they can get visa on arrival. If not then usually the airline also can sponsor the visa (check the website if it is Emirates/Air Arabia/Etihad). Else you can check out the process ChunkyKitty mentioned
