Those interested in applying for the visa must show they earn a minimum of $5,000 a month and must submit their proof of employment. Then, all they have to do is pay the $287 visa fee plus medical insurance and they’re in.
As the local government noted, the program is also aiming to attract more top talent to come live and work in the Emirate, and hopefully have them foster new ideas and businesses while they’re there.
“The new initiative is a testament to the emirate’s ability to quickly adapt to changing market conditions and introduce new measures that improve ease of doing business and enhance its economic competitiveness,” Hamad Buamim, president of the Dubai chamber of commerce and industry, said. “The move also reflects Dubai’s ability to create new opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals to benefit from the city’s advanced digital infrastructure and realize their ambitions in a vibrant innovation-driven business environment.”
Those interested in applying for the program, and seeing all of its perks, can do so on the Visit Dubai website now.
