Low-paid expats in the UAE will now be able to bring their families to the country through the new resolution from the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA).

The resolution allows expats living in the UAE to bring family members to the country, as long as the total family income is AED3,000 per month with housing or AED4,000 per month without housing.

Potential beneficiaries must provide proof of appropriate housing and health insurance for their families, as well as their registration in the national population database.

They must also apply for IDs for every family member, according to a report by the Emirates News Agency.
