How to Get an Investor Visa in the UAE?


The United Arab Emirates is a worthwhile destination for the people who live outside the country and are looking for investment opportunities. Do you know what the cherry on top is?

The UAE Investor Visa is one of the golden opportunities offered to such expats by the UAE government while creating many favourable conditions.


What is a UAE Investor Visa?

The UAE Long-Term Residence Visa, an immigration facility, was initiated in the UAE for rich or highly skilled ex-pats. There are two types of long term residence visas, and the UAE Investor Visa – also known as the Property Visa UAE – is one of the most common types of visas amongst them.

When foreigners are interested in starting some business in the UAE, they are issued a separate visa type called a UAE Investor Visa.


The new system for long-term residence visas was introduced in 2019. It allows foreigners to live, work and study in the UAE, more so, without a national sponsor. They can also get complete ownership of their business on the UAE’s mainland. The time period of these visas is 5 or 10 years and will be renewed automatically.
