Ready to come to Dubai with your Husband ?

Following your husband requires going through a legal procedure. It takes sometimes, but it is mandatory to legally stay in Dubai.

It’s possible while being sponsored by your husband to get a job. You can work legally as long as the company provides you a labor card / work permit. Otherwise, you risk penalties or deportation.
