What is Golden Visa UAE?

In 2019, the UAE introduced a long-term visa called the Golden Visa to attract talented individuals, investors, and entrepreneurs worldwide. Since then, about 70,000 people have become residents of the UAE. The Golden Visa is valid for 10 or 5 years (for retirees), after which it is automatically renewed an unlimited number of times for the same period.

Now, let’s explore the advantages of the Golden Visa in the UAE compared to other options.

Benefits of the Golden Visa in the UAE

A regular investor visa allows you to stay in the Emirates for 2-3 years, with restrictions on the time you can spend outside the country: if you are away for more than six months, your residency is canceled. The Golden Visa is the equivalent of a UAE residence permit, which gives its holder the benefits of using local services on par with native residents:

  • live in the country and travel abroad without restrictions;
  • retain 100% ownership of a business in the mainland (without the Golden Visa, a foreigner can only open a company in the mainland if at least 51% of the shares are owned by local investors);
  • enroll children in local schools and universities;
  • obtain a driver’s license and purchase vehicles;
  • apply for loans and mortgages;
  • do business or get a job, receiving a salary at the level of local residents;
  • sponsor residence visas for parents and children;
  • sponsor up to 3 maids and a driver.

Services for obtaining the Golden Visa

To obtain a Golden Visa, follow these steps:

  • meet one of the conditions for getting a visa;
  • submit an online application with a package of documents to the GDRFA (General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs);
  • wait for a response from GDRFA confirming receipt of your application;
  • wait for the federal administration to verify all the information;
  • receive a notification to visit the nearest Amer service center to collect your visa.

Meeting the eligibility conditions and preparing the documentation in both English and Arabic are the most challenging steps in getting the visa. We can assist you with these issues.

The services of Dynasty Business Adviser include:

  • student visa processing;
  • opening corporate and personal bank accounts;
  • business registration in Dubai, other emirates, or in a free zone;
  • assistance in obtaining licenses, certificates, and permits;
  • registering a business as a VAT payer;
  • comprehensive business audits for company purchase and/or tax reporting.

Obtaining the Golden Visa in the UAE on your own is quite difficult: at least legal knowledge and proficiency in Arabic and English are required. We will help you get the Golden Emirates ID as quickly as possible at a competitive price, ensuring complete confidentiality.

How to get Golden Visa UAE

Steps for applying for a visa in the United Arab Emirates:

  1. Choosing a program.
  2. Meeting the Dubai Golden Visa requirements.
  3. Document preparation and submission.
  4. Getting medical insurance.
  5. Submitting the application.
  6. Receiving a temporary visa.
  7. Obtaining the Golden Visa in Dubai and other UAE zones.

Description of steps

  • Step 1. For investors, this involves selecting suitable real estate. For entrepreneurs – starting a business and having it evaluated. For outstanding talents – legal consultation and certification by the relevant authorities.
  • Step 2. You cannot apply for the Dubai Golden Visa (UAE) without completing the necessary transactions. For instance, an investor must first purchase real estate, or an entrepreneur must establish a company. Only then can the application process begin with the completed documents.
  • Step 3. All accompanying documents must be legalized (translated into Arabic and English) and notarized. It is better to entrust their preparation to qualified specialists, as any mistake can result in the return of all documents and the need to restart the procedure.
  • Step 4. It is mandatory for UAE residents. It can be obtained after a medical examination at certified local medical centers.
  • Step 5. The completed documents, along with the application, must be submitted to the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA). You will also need to visit the nearest Amer service center to have your photograph taken and biometric data (fingerprints) collected, which are necessary for getting the Golden Emirates ID.
  • Step 6. While the application is being processed, you can conduct business and handle other matters with a temporary visa. However, you cannot leave the country until the data verification process is complete.
  • Step 7. After all documents have been checked, you will be invited to a service center where a visa will be affixed to your passport, and an identification card will be issued, indicating that you are a UAE resident.
