Beloved Chef Izu Ani Recieves UAE Golden Visa

Chef Izu Ani has been awarded a UAE Golden Visa for his dedication to the restaurant industry in the emirate.

Chef Izu Ani says, “I feel honoured and proud to have been recognised with the UAE Gold Card Visa. To me, Dubai is not a transient place, it’s somewhere that we can call home, rather than just pass through. It’s a destination that allows us to grow. When we invest in ourselves, in our passions and projects, we plant the seeds of development. Seeds that can grow into cities, where we can spread our roots. With hard work comes reward and recognition, and it is so inspiring to live in a place where we can achieve our goals. Dubai enables us to see the world with the eyes of a child, to explore and build our dreams into our realities, and for that I will always be grateful.”
