UAE simplified the rules of residence scheme for foreigners and obtaining a long-term visa
The UAE launched new types of “Golden Visa” for expats. The new options for long-term resident visas are the following: Job exploration entry visa, Business entry visa, Multiple entry tourist visa for 5 years, and 5-year visa for freelancers and remote workers.
The visa will not be canceled if holders are outside the UAE for unlimited time. Nowadays, "Golden Visa" for 10 years is issued for the purchase of real estate valued at 544,500 dollars.
Highly skilled foreigners can come to the UAE to apply for a job without being invited by an employer or sponsor. Freelancers and remote workers are also able to become residents of the UAE.
Another benefit is that the Golden Visa holders' sons under 25 years old can now receive a residence permit. Family members may remain in the UAE after the sponsor's death.
