  • A controversial study has concluded that the real reason women pursue careers is because they fear they are too unattractive to get married.

 

A reader from Dubai asks: I am an employee in a company with a salary of Dh10,000 plus accommodation. Can I sponsor my husband who is currently outside UAE, in addition to my three sons? Please advise me in this regard.

The Department of Naturalisation and Residency requires the following:

-The wife shall be an engineer, doctor or teacher.

-The salary shall be either Dh4,000 or Dh3,000 and accommodation.

If the questioner's job is other than the above listed professions, the questioner shall make a petition to the Department of Naturalisation and Residency to exempt her from this requirement. The said department will decide on this request and pass its resolution of acceptance or rejection.
