DUBAI – Renewing or canceling a family visa can now be done with just a tap on your smartphone, the UAE residency authority said.
According to an advisory from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, residents can get, renew or cancel their spouse’s and children’s residency visa through the DubaiNow app. Click here to download.
The DubaiNow app is the first unified Dubai government services app where users can connect to dozens of Dubai government services.
The app allows users to check visa status and view or manage family visa applications or apply for new residency visa for a family member instead of going to an accredited typing centre.
The service is part of the Dubai Paperless Strategy for government agencies to stop issuing or requesting paper documents from customers after 2021.
Expatriates with valid residency permit and a minimum salary of Dh4,000 or Dh3,000 and accommodation, may sponsor their immediate family members. ICA/Expat Media
