All about UAE Golden Visa

The "Golden visa" is a long-term residence permit offered by the UAE that allows foreign nationals to dwell, work, or study there while also enjoying several special perks, such as:

  1. A six-month entry visa with repeated entries to proceed with the issuance of a resident permit.
  2. A lengthy, renewable residence permit that is good for five or ten years, with the benefit of not requiring sponsorship.
  3. The ability to stay outside the United Arab Emirates for longer than the typical six-month term to maintain the validity of their residence visa.
  4. The power to sponsor family members, such as wives and kids, regardless of age.

The option to sponsor an unlimited number of domestic servants and permit family members to remain in the UAE until the expiration of their visas.

  • Investors, business owners, startup founders, remarkable talent, scientists, experts across a range of industries, great students and recent graduates, humanitarian trailblazers, and frontline heroes are all given long-term visas.
  • The advantages of long-term visas will also apply to immediate family members. The age when a child can be sponsored by the holder of a Golden Visa or Green Residence visa has been raised from 18 to 25, and unmarried daughters have no age restriction. No matter their age, children of determination are given a residency permit.
  • With the introduction of the UAE Golden Visa residency program in 2019, foreigners can now live, work, and study in the UAE without needing a national sponsor and with full ownership of their company on the country's mainland.
  • With the revised regulations, it is now easier to qualify for 10-year visas because more people from a broader range of vocations will be able to apply for the Golden Visa.
