How to hold family visa while canceling Sponsor's visa:

NOTE: Special approval of senior officer from Immigration is required to hold family visa.


  • If a person has been upgraded from an employee to a business partner, he or she can change their visa from employment to Investor/Partner Visa. Next, type an application and get the seal and signature of the person sponsoring you. Next, attach all the documents required for this process and submit the application at the time of immigration. They must pay Dh220 for file opening, and Dh680 to issue visa inside the country.
  • Next, they have to cancel their existing labor card and visit the Immigration head office, Jafliya with their Labor Card cancellation receipt, the visa cancellation form and their family’s original passport. They are required to pay Dh5020 as refundable deposit to hold dependent’s visa and Dh120 as a service charge for each dependent's passport. Then they will cancel your existing visa.
  • Next, type the status change form of Dh510 (typing charge extra) and put a seal and a signature of the new company on it, and submit it at the Immigration. You will get a paper of status change.
  • Do the medical examination next. Type Emirates ID and visa stamping application and submit at the Immigration.
  • After stamping your visa, you can refund the deposit amount.
  • Your dependents can continue their current visa and renew at the time of expiry.


Take original deposit receipt and your passport to Refund Counter at Immigration Head Office, Jafiliya.

Get no objection for refund seal from the counter and go to Dubai Commercial Bank (next to Immigration building) and collect the cash. The bank will charge Dh40 as commission.

If the deposit receipt gets lost: If the deposit receipt gets lost, collect lieu of lost receipt from Dubai Commercial Bank (next to Immigration building), Jafiliya. You can show the receipt copy or your original passport for reference. Take this receipt to Immigration refund counter and pay Dh70 as lost fee. Immigration officer will put a stamp of NO OBJECTION FOR REFUND, go to CBD counter and collect the cash. Bank will charge Dh40 as commission.


Q: I had deposited Dh 10,000 / Dh 20,000 for my investor/partner visa. I heard that as per the new rule, no deposit for investor/partner visa. Can I refund my old deposit from Immigration?

A: Yes, you can refund. All you have to do is to follow the same steps as above and you’re good to go. If you have family member or members under your sponsorship, you should deposit Dh3020 for each of them. Then you can refund your own visa deposit. One cannot refund their deposit if there is an over stay or other violation in your company file.
