The UAE Cabinet has declared the launch of a new resident visa category, the Green visa, which is one of the most significant improvements to the UAE visa system in years. As part of the announcement, a new type of Green Residence Permit for entrepreneurs, skilled personnel, self-employed professionals, and family members.
The program allows people to remain in the nation for up to six months after their residence permit has been revoked or lapsed.
5-year Green Residence Permit
Without the necessity for an employer or sponsor, qualified professionals can acquire a five-year green residence visa. The following are the categories:
I. Self Employed or Freelance Individuals
There is no requirement for a sponsor or an employer for this 5-year resident visa. As a minimum academic requirement, a bachelor’s degree or specialised certificate is necessary. Furthermore, the individual’s annual self-employment income for the previous two years must have been at least Dhs360,000.
II. Skilled Employees
There is no requirement for a sponsor or an employer for this 5-year resident visa. Candidates must be employed and classified in one of the first, second, or third occupational levels.
III. For business partners or investors
This residence visa allows investors to stay for five years while starting or expanding a business. It replaces the previous residence, which was just two years long. The prerequisites include permission and proof of investment.
IV. Family Members
Children sponsorship age limit have been elevated from 18 to 25, with no age limit for unmarried daughters. Children of determination are given a residence visa regardless of their age. Green residence visa holders may issue residence permits to first-degree relatives, with the family members’ residency having the same duration as the primary resident visa holder.
The proposed Green visa programme focuses on strengthening the UAE’s profile as an attractive location to lure foreign talents and skilled professionals, as well as the adaptability of the labour force.
