Everything about the UAE’s golden visa
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) introduced this new system for long-term residence visas in 2019. This enables foreigners to stay, study and work in the country without needing a national sponsor that too with a 100 per cent control/ownership of business. The 2019 amendment was introduced to cover up for the COVID led economic losses in the country. This attracted new foreign residents to live in the city. This Golden Visa system offers long-term residency, say 5- 10 years. It is available particularly to entrepreneurs, investors, individuals with exceptional talents–like researchers, professionals, scientists and students with outstanding academia.
How can you apply
Candidates who are interested and would like to apply for the Golden Visa, can go to the official website of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship — ICA (the eChannel for residency and citizenship), or the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) which work closely with the ministry. Candidates are required to submit the required documents and be willing to relocate to the country (UAS) in accordance with their business plans/ventures.
