Earlier today, United Arab Emirates (UAE) has extended the eligibility criteria for the golden visa system, allowing certain professionals, specialized degree-holders, and others to work and live in the Middle Eastern country for a longer-term.
As per an official statement released by the UAE’s PM Office, all doctors, engineers in the fields of computer engineering, electronics, programming, electricity and biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and big data, and 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 are eligible to apply for the golden visa program.
Last year in May, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum UAE’s PM and Ruler of Dubai announced the golden visa system, a long-term residency program.
As per the reports, the golden visa is a 5-year to 10-year renewable residency visa of the UAE which allows investors, entrepreneurs, professional talents, and researchers from around the world to take up residence in the Gulf state.
As soon as the golden visa system was first announced, more than 400 investors and businessmen, along with their families, had availed of the long term visa.
In December 2019, the UAE’s Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship had introduced a devoted website for golden visa applicants.
