For Dh350 and Dh1250, respectively, service bundles are offered for the "residence entry permit for high school top ranked students in UAE" and the "residence permit for high school top ranked students in UAE."

student visa sponsored by parents

Parents can fund their children's studies. Until marriage, residents may finance a female child's study at any age.

However, male children under the age of 25 may be sponsored by foreign residents. Male children under 25 can only be sponsored by their parents if they can show that they attended a university for at least a year.

Is it possible for students to sponsor their families?

According to a representative from Amer, students who possess a Golden Visa can "extend the visa to their parents, spouses, and children without any prejudice.

In addition, foreign students may sponsor their parents "as long as they can afford it," according to Vice President, Prime Minister, and Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It is imperative, in WAM's opinion, that family members be able to afford decent accommodation.
