More Skilled Expats Eligible for the UAE's "Golden Visa"

26 november 2020

The United Arab Emirates will extend its "golden" visa system - which grants 10-year residency - to certain professionals, specialized degree-holders and others.

All holders of doctorate degrees, medical doctors and computer, electronics, programming, electrical and biotechnology engineers are eligible.

Also eligible are those with specialized degrees in artificial intelligence, big data and epidemiology, as well as high school students living in the UAE who rank top in the country and students from certain universities with a GPA of 3.8 or higher.

After first announcing a long-term visa plan in 2018, the UAE in 2019 started granting 5- and 10-year renewable visas to certain foreign investors, entrepreneurs, chief executives, scientists, and outstanding students.

The emirate of Dubai, a Middle East trade and tourism hub, in September said it would grant visas renewable every five years to wealthy foreign retirees.

Foreigners in the UAE usually have renewable visas valid for only a few years tied to employment. The government in the past couple of years has made its visa policy more flexible, offering longer residencies for certain types of investors, students and professionals.
