During a temporary stay in the territory of the UAE, it is necessary to obtain a temporary residence permit in the UAE. By obtaining a legal basis for staying in the UAE, individuals can enjoy a number of rights and privileges enjoyed by citizens of the UAE.

What documents prove the legality of staying in the territory of the UAE:

  • UAE work visa – issued to foreigners in case of concluding an employment contract with a company in the territory of the UAE
  • Student visa of the UAE – in the case of admission to a university, completion of the corresponding course of study
  • UAE family visa – granted to close family members of the UAE

In accordance with such permits, there are the following grounds for obtaining a temporary stay permit:

  • Employment
  • Acquiring ownership of real estate
  • Registration of the enterprise – a resident of the free economic zone. In this case, the company’s shareholders and employees receive the right to GNP.
  • Studying at higher educational institutions in the UAE
  • Family reunification (a family member of a resident or citizen of the UAE)

EMPLOYMENT IN THE TERRITORY OF THE UAE

The most common reasons for foreigners to apply for a residence permit are to start a company in Dubai or to join other family members who work and live in the city. In addition to employer sponsorship, a foreign national can also obtain a residence permit if a UAE national sponsors him or her to move to Dubai. First, the foreign national will be issued an entry permit that will allow him or her to move to Dubai before a residence permit is issued. If the employer applies for an entry visa for a foreign national, the Dubai company must also apply for permission to employ the foreigner and provide its business license. The entry permit has a limited validity period of only 2 months, so the residence permit must be obtained within this period.

ACQUISITION OF REAL ESTATE IN THE TERRITORY OF THE UAE

Another way to get a residence visa in Dubai is to buy real estate. Even if this option is available to high-income individuals, foreign entrepreneurs very often acquire a residence permit in Dubai by investing in real estate. The conditions for obtaining a residency visa in this way are that the property must be completed at the time of purchase and its value must be at least AED 1 million (approximately US$275,000). A residence visa obtained when buying real estate in Dubai is valid for two years and does not give the right to work in the Emirate. However, its main advantage is that owners are not required to register a company in Dubai.

ENTERPRISE REGISTRATION IN THE TERRITORY OF THE UAE

Perhaps the most popular way to obtain a residence permit in Dubai is to register a company in the emirate or in one of its free zones. If opening an offshore company involves sponsorship from a local partner, registering a company in the Dubai Free Zone involves full ownership of the company. This type of residency visa allows a foreign national to be a shareholder in a local company and also to employ employees in Dubai.

The residence visa obtained by registering a company in Dubai is valid for three years and can be extended. Our company registration representatives in Dubai can help with the documents related to the establishment of companies in the Emirate or from any of its free zones. We can also assist you in obtaining a residence permit in the UAE.

STUDYING IN UNIVERSITIES IN THE UAE

Many universities attract students from all over the world, and therefore studying and concluding a contract with the university regarding the completion of a course of study is the basis for staying in the UAE on legal grounds, depending on the duration of such study or course.

UNION WITH THE FAMILY

Most foreign nationals moving to Dubai are also interested in obtaining visas for other family members. They should be aware that they can obtain residence permits for close family members such as spouses, children and even parents. The applicant must also meet certain criteria to be allowed to bring family members to Dubai. Among them, his or her salary must be at least AED 4,000 or AED 3,000, but additional funds will be required for living expenses. In the case of those who want to bring their parents, the employer can sponsor the employee, but the minimum wage is AED 10,000.

To bring their family, a Dubai resident permit holder must first apply for a resident entry visa on their own behalf – this process must begin 30 days before their arrival. Regarding the documents required to obtain a Dubai residence permit for family members in 2022, the applicant’s marriage certificate and payslip must be provided along with information about the documents will feel the identity of a family member.

What are the benefits of a temporary residence permit in the UAE?

  • Ability to work and rest
  • Have a high standard of living
  • Quality medicine
  • Ability to travel without problems
  • Receiving social benefits and additional guarantees

For what period is a temporary residence permit issued in the UAE?

Depending on the basis of stay, it can be 1, 3 or 5 years.

Foreigners sponsoring family members for a Dubai residency visa must have a monthly income of at least AED 3,000 if the accommodation is provided by an employer, or at least AED 4,000 per month if the sponsor owns their own property.
