Hi ,

I am looking to sponsor my parents in Abu Dhabi. I know that the basic criteria to sponsor your parents is 20K per month salary, and a 2 Bed Room Accommodation at the minimum.I am able to fulfill both of these conditions.

Recently I found out that I need to buy their Health Insurance as well. I've checked through different companies and it is showing around 18 K AED per annum for both of my parents.

Is there anyone is this group have sponsored their parents from India? Any suggestions of what I should do?

Hi there,

Health insurance is needed in order to gain a residence visa for expats in Abu-Dhabi. Aetna International, as well as Cigna Global, are two world renowned international health insurance companies, perhaps this is a good place to start to compare prices.  Is health insurance covered in your employment package? Is it perhaps possible to add your parent to this policy?

Our guide for expats moving to Abu-Dhabi may be able to answer any more questions you have.

Hope this helps!
