Utility bills, housing rent copy, mandatory for family visas
A copy of tenancy contract and utility bills, have been made mandatory in the UAE, for those planning to get a family member into the UAE on a residency visa, or a housemaid or a driver. However, when availing visit visas, this is not required.
Further, all these documents require attestation from the Municipality and the utility provider in the emirate that you reside in. The tenancy contract for those residing in Dubai will be attested only by the Dubai Municipality, and the electricity and water bills by the DEWA.
For instance, those living in Dubai will be attested only by the Dubai Municipality, while the electricity and water bill will be attested by DEWA. Those with Dubai visa, living in Sharjah, need to get their tenancy contract and utility bill attested by Sharjah Municipality and SEWA.
The typing centres have clarified that the attested documents are required before processing the applications. The documents should be in the name of the sponsor. This rule is also applicable for housemaids.
