7 out of 10 Pinoys want to bring their families to UAE

About 70% of the Filipinos working in the UAE whose salaries are within the new immigration bracket are planning to bring their families here.

This was according to the recent poll conducted by The Filipino Times to 820 people, a few days after the re§cent announcement of the Government of the UAE, allowing any expats to bring their families to the country for as long as they are earning at least Dh3000 (with accommodation) or Dh4000.

The implementation also gained mixed reactions from netizens after The Filipino Times posted the first story about this last July 15. It had 121,000 people reached and about 15,000 engagements. Some netizens immediately inquired about the process, others on the accommodation, and others on the papers needed to submit.

Many of these Filipinos have long been wanting to bring their families on a residence visa but weren’t able to because the criteria were based on the profession – which was limited – and not based on income.

New hope for a new home

Many more Filipinos are now considering UAE for their families. Just like Shiersy Marie, 23 years old and now works as a chiropractor assistant. She’ll speed up on saving money to bring her family in UAE soon. She earns Dh4000 here per month.

“Yes, of course! I would love to be with my family while I’m achieving my dreams here. I can bring them here at the soonest possible time” she said.

On the other hand, 39 years old and visual merchandiser Edsel Bersamin earns Dh5000 monthly. Esel was pleasantly surprised with the new policy.

“Masaya ako dahil mas mapapadali na ang pagkuha ko sa pamilya ko dito unlike before,” (I’m happy ‘cause it would be easier for me to bring my family here unlike before) Edsel said.

Before, it was hard for him to bring his family to the UAE because the profession was the core of all requirements. But now, he feels like he won a trophy after receiving the news.

“Mahirap dalhin ang family noon dahil trabaho ang basehan. Ngayon salary na so mas okay,” (it was hard to bring my family here before since the profession was the main basis. At least now it’s the salary so much better) he added.

Edsel is now planning to process the papers of his wife and children.
