Global Immigration Update – UAE
United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi now requires that the original Emirates ID of the sponsor is now also needed to support any dependents within the visa application process.
Following from this, if the sponsor is out of the country when the visa application is submitted, then the application will be rejected.
To check if the sponsor is out of the country, the Emirates ID will be scanned by the immigration authorities.
