The UAE introduced a new long-term visa system in 2019 called the Golden Visa, allowing foreign nationals to live, work, and study in the country. The Golden visa is a long-term residence visa which enables foreign talents to live, work or study in the UAE while enjoying exclusive benefits.
Investors, entrepreneurs, scientists, outstanding students and graduates, humanitarian pioneers and frontline heroes are among those eligible for the Golden visa. This initiative aimed to attract more foreign residents, particularly to Dubai.
