To the delight of investors and those who dream of moving to Dubai, in 2022 the government relaxed the requirements for obtaining a visa: the minimum investment amount has decreased and the range of visa recipients has expanded.
The golden visa gives not only the right to the long-term residence but also to open a bank account, optimize taxes, receive income from the assets of the Arab Emirates, study in educational institutions, and receive medical care.
Who can get a golden visa and under what conditions:
– investors and entrepreneurs (buying real estate, owning a company in the UAE)
– Public figures and famous personalities (athletes, inventors, artists, activists, and volunteers of public organizations)
– Scientists and valuable employees (researchers with a master’s degree or higher, qualified specialists with a bachelor’s degree or higher, outstanding students of secondary schools and universities)
Basic requirements for the applicant:
– Reaching the age of 18
– Passing a security check
– Passing a medical examination
Together with the main applicant, his family members also receive visas. On average, a visa is issued in 2-3 months.
After obtaining a golden visa and living in the UAE for more than 30 years, it will be possible to obtain citizenship. But it is important to understand that it is forbidden to have dual citizenship in the United Arab Emirates! The original one will have to be abandoned.
