Hi all,

My first post here. I have been offered a job in Dubai. I recently found out that I may not be able to sponsor my husband. Is that so? I've heard different things. Anyone with any info regarding this matter? Thanks much!

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
What job will you be doing and what will your monthly salary be?
In order to sponsor your husband - you need to be either a nurse, engineer, doctor or teacher - earning more than 4000 AED per month.
Cheers
Steve

Thank you Steve for responding. I fulfill both of the criterias. I knew about these two conditions before applying, but I heard this is a very very recent change in regulations. I hope things haven't changed.
