The lives, aspirations and ambitions of Vinay, Vinitha and their daughter resonate among the hundreds and thousands of expat Indian families in the UAE and the Middle East, exploring options to migrate from the region to Western countries such as Canada, the US, UK, the EU, or Australia and New Zealand in the quest for a better life.

However, the path to migration is often an obstacle course for those ill-informed about the process. From being aware of the rules that govern the migration process to knowing which consultant to approach to ensure the learning curve is linear and seamless requires due diligence on the part of those who choose to migrate.

Bayat: A Solemn Promise, a 4-part webseries produced by Bayat Legal Services, one of the most established brand names in the field of immigration and investment by second citizenship, and created in collaboration with Gulf News' content arm, agnc3, explores the myriad obstacles couples across expat communities in the UAE face in their quest to migrate and how these issues are surmounted with expert assistance from the Bayat Team.

Will Vinay, Vinitha and their daughter make it to Canada after all, will Bayat Legal Services be able to help them on their journey?
