The United Arab Emirates is one of the most attractive countries in the world in terms of operation of business and residence. The main advantages of the country include tax free status, high standards of life, excellent opportunities for business development, economic and political stability.

Prior to starting any business or relocating to the UAE, it is required to obtain resident visa (residence permit). It is relatively easy to obtain such visa within relatively short period of time if the respective requirements are duly followed.

Peculiar features of residence visa in the UAE

Unlike UAE tourist visa, resident visa is issued for 3 years, and upon its expiry you will be able to renew it without limitations on number of times it can be renewed. If you have resident visa, you are entitled to permanent residence in the United Arab Emirates. In addition, you may obtain visa for immediate family members: wife / husband and children under 18 year old.

In practice, UAE resident visa is sticker inside your passport. There is also Emirate identification card that is issued in addition to the aforesaid visa. It contains general information about its holder. This card is valid throughout the Emirates and may be used inside the country instead of a passport.

In order to maintain resident visa valid you are required to enter the Emirates at least one time every six months. Violation of this rule will result in visa being blocked. And, subsequently, the unblocking of visa will entail the compliance with the procedure for its re-activation thereof.

How to obtain resident visa?

Resident visa, i.e. residence permit in the UAE, may be obtained subject to the following regulations:

  • Upon purchase of real estate. In case of purchase of residential property in Dubai or any other Emirate with value over one million dirhams, you may obtain residence permit in the UAE. In such event the validity of residence visa is 2 years.
  • Upon entering into employment contract. If you are planning to get employed officially in Dubai or other Emirates, you need working / employment visa. All formalities related to visa obtainment shall be performed by your employer. On average it takes 2-3 weeks to receive such visa.
  • Incorporation of your own company in the United Arab Emirates. This is the most convenient and efficient option for obtaining business visas in the UAE. It takes only a few weeks to obtain visa and the expenses incurred are relatively low. Moreover, it is not necessary for a company to perform real activity – its business may be purely formal.

The procedure for obtaining business visa through incorporation of a company in the Emirates

For obtaining resident visa in the UAE it is necessary to provide a copy of passport and other required documents. In some cases, additional documents may be required, such as bank statement, utility bill or any other document confirming the place of current residency. Upon submission of all documents, within a few days you are issued a certificate of incorporation of onshore company. Thereupon you and your family members receive residence permit in the UAE.
