I received this by email today and would like to share it with you:

Abu Dhabi: The Federal National Council (FNC) on Tuesday proposed increasing the minimum salary requirement to sponsor families of expatriates in the UAE.
According to the proposal, the minimum salary required for an expatriate - without company accommodation - to sponsor family should be Dh10,000 and an expatriate with company accommodation: Dh8,000.
The FNC resumed its session on Tuesday after National Day and Eid holidays on Tuesday.
An Ad-hoc committee of the House also suggested that family-visa applicants should be asked to submit bank statements of six months, detailing salary transfer.
The House also suggested that an expatriate with a minimum salary of Dh15,000 should only be allowed to sponsor housemaids. It also recommended increasing the annual fee for sponsoring a housemaid to Dh7,000.

What do you think, is it fair?

Is that true, It is totally unfair, what if my salary is less than 8000 and then I want my wife to come here to help me out, she may have salary too, what they are trying to do? reduce the population?

That is totally unfair, for married people, this will encourage the prostitution all over, for the house maid it is understandable, but still they have to provide better solutions not restrictions.
