Visa for Divorcees, Widows and their Children

A one-year extension of residency visa for widows and divorced women and their children. This category of beneficiaries starts from the date of the divorce or death of the spouse. They won't need a sponsor to apply for the visa.

Fees: Dh360 for one-year residency visa; Dh155 to cancel previous visa.


Terms and Conditions

The application for extension is subject to conditions and regulations. For example, the applicant should have the residency visa sponsored by the deceased or former husband at the time of death or divorce.

The residency visa should also be valid at the time of death or divorce, and the children’s residency period does not exceed that of the mother.

Applicants and their children, though, must be under the husband's visa at the time of the death or divorce, and the visas must not have expired.

There should also be proof that the woman has been divorced or widowed, and that she has a residence and the financial ability to provide for the family.

To extend their visa, applicants must present an official divorce or death certificate, the old visa and proof that they can provide for the family. 


If widows and divorced women didn't have a male sponsor in the country, they can sponsor themselves and their children for one year.

Documents Required
>Medical fitness certificate for the mother and children over the age of 18, in addition to the Emirates identity card.


>A tenancy contract (Ejari) & DEWA bill, which should be in the name of woman.

>No need to pay extra money upon leaving the country after the one-year visa has expired.
