Dubai: Golden Residency Visa System for Expatriates to be Introduced
Following an agreement between Dubai’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs and Dubai Free Zone Council, a golden residency visa system for expatriates is going to be introduced. It will be launched as part of the ‘Be Part of Dubai’ initiative. As part of the agreement, the three organisations will work together to identify priority investment sectors in Dubai, in line with the Emirate’s income diversification targets. They will also work together to familiarise businesspeople with the opportunities available in key economic sectors, as well as with the incentives offered to foreign investors in Dubai. The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the Global Business Forum Africa 2019 in Dubai.
