Residence Visa

Residence Visa, Freelancer, Investor, Employee Visa and Family Dependent Visa

Types of Residence Visa

A United Arab Emirates (UAE) residence visa is a permit that allows foreign people to live in this country for a long period of time. The visa can be valid for 2,3, 5 or even 10 years and may be renewed as many times as a person needs. Many international families living in the Emirates for generations, just keep on renewing their visas regularly.

UAE permanent residency does not exist as such. Being a UAE permanent resident simply means having a visa stamp in your passport and constantly living in this country.

The Golden visa is a long-term residence visa that enables foreign talents to live and work or study in the UAE while enjoying exclusive benefits. Investors, entrepreneurs, scientists, outstanding students and graduates, humanitarian pioneers, and frontline heroes are amongst those eligible for the Golden visa.

A residence visa is also mandatory to obtain a driving license, register a car, apply for a PO Box, open a bank account in the UAE, and so on.


There are a few ways to obtain UAE residency:

  • Setup a business in the UAE
  • Get employed
  • Open a freelance permit in Dubai or other Emirates
  • Enroll in a college or university
  • Be a dependent (it can be a child or a retired parent of a resident)
  • Own property with a value over 1 mln AED
  • UAE Golden visa
  • UAE residency visa for retirees
