Can parent earning Dh5,000 sponsor unmarried daughter in UAE?

I am turning 24 this April and am unmarried, so is it possible for my father to sponsor me for a visa? He is a supervisor and earns Dh5,000 per month. RS, Dubai.

A father can sponsor an unmarried daughter no matter her age. The current rules still show that the minimum salary required by the sponsor is Dh4,000. There was much talk of this being increased to Dh10,000 last year, but no changes have been formally announced.
