Understanding Dubai Child Visas

There are few better places for children to grow up than Dubai. The UAE offers its citizens the very best in education and healthcare, ensuring that they reach their full potential whilst living in the country. Every year we help to reunite families who, before speaking to us, were living thousands of miles apart, and it’s something that gives us a lot to smile about. Since 1996, we’ve grown to become the world’s number one choice for immigration and employment solutions and with a 98% success rate, it’s easy to see why.

We are offering everyone who contacts us our fast, FREE, friendly assessment from our experts to provide you complete peace of mind today.

Together in the UAE

The Dubai Child visa is a residence permit which is valid for 2-3 years for a person who is the son or daughter of a resident or citizen of the UAE. The permit gives our client the right to live and receive education in Dubai for as long as the permit is valid. There are many great educational opportunities for children in Dubai and our team of immigration experts have built up lasting relationships with many schools in the country. With our guidance and support, your relocation to the UAE could be easier than you ever imagined.

We could expect to have your visa processed within just a few weeks and we would expect it to cost around 1000 AED in processing fees. As neither the times nor cost of processing are determined by Brighter Visas, we are unable to change them. These times and costs are set by the Dubai immigration authorities and, as such, are under constant review and subject to change.

Happy Families

In order to have your case processed successfully, you will need to be sponsored by a citizen or resident of the UAE. This sponsor must be over the age of 18 and be able to show that they can support the applicant financially. Additionally, they will need to demonstrate that they have the available living space (either an apartment or house) for the applicant.

The visa is renewable provided that the sponsor continues to be employed in the UAE. As this visa is intended for children, it is not required that a job offer be extended for the application to be granted. You will not be required to provide maintenance for this visa, meaning that you will not have to shoe evidence of a certain level of savings to be eligible. However, as mentioned above, you will need to prove that your sponsor has enough available funds to be able to support you.


A New Life in Dubai

Living and working away from our family can be extremely stressful but, often, life can offer us few alternatives. We take great pride in our work and it always gives us a great feeling when we can reunite families. We’ve been working hard to do that and much more since 1996 and over 94% of our clients would love to recommend our services. Why not take our free assessment to find out if you’re eligible?

“It had been very difficult being separated from my son and I worked hard every day in the hope that I would see him again. I had moved to Dubai with the help of Brighter Visas so I could build a better life for my family but this also meant leaving my son behind. I knew it would be very difficult but I had to do it to benefit all of us. Eventually, I had worked in Dubai long enough to be granted residency and I called Brighter Visas straight away so that my son could come over too. The team at Brighter Visas were so kind and understanding, they really helped me to understand what was happening. Of course, I was very nervous about the whole process which is why I’m glad I went to a professional service like Brighter Visas. Their experience and know-how was invaluable to me and I’m sure it’s why my son’s visa was granted. No that we’re reunited, I really can’t thank Brighter Visas enough for making my dreams come true.”

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
