The UAE implemented a system for long-term residence visas, known as the UAE Golden Visa, in 2019. The system enables foreigners to livework and study in the UAE without the need of a national sponsor and with 100% ownership of their business on the UAE’s mainland. These visas will be issued for 5 or 10 years and will be renewed automatically.

Celebrities such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Ragheb Alama, Mohamed Ramadan, Najwa Karam and few others recieved the UAE Golden visa.
