There are several ways of obtaining a residence permit in the UAE:

  • Marriage to a citizen of the Emirates;
  • Studying in the university of the country;
  • Employment contract;
  • Purchase of the real estate;
  • Opening your own company.

Family immigration to the UAE via opening the business

Company registration is the most convenient and easiest method of obtaining a residence permit in the UAE. Especially because in the UAE there are the most attractive conditions for carrying on the business: low or even zero taxes, the complete lack of bureaucracy and currency exchange regulation and the loyal attitude of the country. In addition to all these advantages, the business owners receive a residence permit (residence visa) for themselves and members of their families. The period of validity of the residence visa is 3 year, after which it needs to be renewed.

Choosing obtaining the residence visa via opening the business, first of all you should determine the activity of the company and place of its registration: on the main territory of the country or in one of the free trade zones. Then you should go through a short and fairly simple procedure of licensing and submit all the necessary documents.

Opening the company in the UAE is relatively inexpensive and lasts only a couple of weeks. And it is not necessary that the firm will actually operate – it can exist formally. There is no risk that there will be difficulties with the renewal of the residence permit in such case.
