The United Arab Emirates is expanding the Golden Visa programme in order to attract more workers. This includes scientists, researchers, and experienced people. The list of employees also includes eminent scholars and clerics, elite specialists in industry and the fourth industrial revolution, and experts in the fields of health and education.
A long-term residence visa called the UAE Golden Visa allows foreigners with special talents to live, work, or study in the UAE. These advantages include a long-term renewable residence visa good for five or ten years, the benefit of not needing a sponsor, the opportunity to stay outside the UAE for longer than the standard period of six months while still maintaining their residence visa’s validity, the capacity to sponsor an infinite number of people, and the ability to sponsor their family members, including wives and children regardless of their ages.
Workers who wish to apply for this UAE golden visa must possess an employment agreement that has been approved in the UAE and documentary evidence demonstrating that they hold a level 1 or level 2 occupation according to the MOHRE’s (Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratization) system of occupational classification.
For jobs needing this employment certificate, a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification must be attested. It is also necessary to submit a wage certificate from the employer together with a bank statement from the last six months showing a monthly salary of at least AED 30,000.
