SUMMARY

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a small Middle Eastern country. It has solidified its position as a global destination that attracts many visitors, businesspeople, and expats in recent decades. Thousands of expats live in the well-known cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Since 2018, the UAE has allowed foreigners with valuable skills to apply for long-term residency. This includes the UAE Investor Visa or golden visa, which is a residency by investment scheme. Applicants that are approved will be given a 5-year or 10-year permit that is renewable. Investor visa holders will be eligible to apply for UAE citizenship starting in 2021. The naturalization process used to be complicated and rarely culminated in citizenship.

The UAE Golden Visa scheme gives you the option of applying for a 10-year or 5-year permit. UAE Golden Visa is the most preferred option for investors worldwide who want to immigrate to the UAE. Those who invest at least AED 10 million in a company or financial instrument are eligible for a 10-year license. If you buy a property worth at least AED 5 million or start a company worth at least AED 500,000, you will get a 5-year permit. The investment must be held for a minimum of three years.
With no tax on personal income and most types of corporate income, the UAE is one of the most tax-friendly jurisdictions. 

You can now become a UAE citizen thanks to the new citizenship rule. The UAE passport is one of the best in the country, allowing visa-free travel to the Schengen area of Europe, China, Russia, and even Canada.
