Here's How We Can Help With Immigration And Visa Support:
Securing A Long-term UAE Residence Visa
Many people find that they want to stay in the UAE for longer than 2-3 years. For them and for entrepreneurs there are some alternative options available. If you are a high-value investor or classified as a professional or talented researcher, you can apply for a 5-year or 10-year Visa.
Anyone who can invest between 5 and 10 million AED in business, investment funds or real estate is recognised as a high-value investor. If you prove your value in science, medicine or art, you will be recognised as a talented professional.
How To Renew Your UAE Residence Visa
If your Visa is set to expire you will have to reapply for a new one to legally remain in the UAE. The good news is the process is much more straightforward and requires less documentation.
Around 1-2 weeks ahead of your current Visa’s expiry date you will need to book a medical check-up. This will involve several tests. When you receive your results, you send them and your passport to the immigration office.
They will stamp your passport. Further, send confirmation that you have renewed your Visa for another 2-3 years. This is depending on the type of residence Visa you apply for.
