How to apply for family visa in UAE?

I am an Indian having residence visa issued by my employer in Abu Dhabi. My employer has a project in Ajman and assigned me to work in Ajman on this project for a year. I want to bring my family to the UAE on a family visa. I have already obtained a tenancy contract in the emirate of Ajman.

But my application to sponsor my family visa was rejected by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Ajman as my residence visa is from Abu Dhabi. Despite a letter from my employer and my customer who is an Ajman government department, my application for family residence visa was rejected. I really don’t know what to do now

Answer:

Pursuant to your queries, your employment visa is issued by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs office in Abu Dhabi and your file is with the Abu Dhabi office of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs. Therefore, you should apply and obtain a residence visa for your family from the Abu Dhabi office of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs.

You may present a tenancy contract of a residential premises you have rented in Ajman to the Abu Dhabi office of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs.
