Golden visa

The golden visa of the UAE is a special residency status that provides enhanced living opportunities in the UAE. Different visas offer different privileges to their holders. The golden visa essentially encompasses all these privileges. It allows you to access quality healthcare at par with the locals, easily conduct business in the UAE, open an account in a local bank, use the well-developed infrastructure for living and leisure, and become a tax resident of the country with a favorable tax regime. We can assist you in swift application for a golden visa!

For real estate investors

One way to acquire a golden visa is through real estate investment. The UAE real estate market is among the most thriving sectors in the Emirates, making real estate investment an excellent choice for those seeking to quickly attain residency status with maximum privileges.

Investors who own real estate valued at least 2,000,000 AED (~$500,000) or have a share in property of equivalent value are eligible for a golden visa. It is important to note that the total investment can comprise various assets. The property could either be already constructed or still under construction by a certified developer. Moreover, the property can also be mortgaged from a certified bank.

Notably, an application for a golden visa can be submitted if investments in the under-construction property have reached or exceeded 2,000,000 AED and the construction is more than 50% complete.

The process of obtaining a visa

  • Obtaining an entry permit

    You give us the documents, we verify, translate, get them legally certified and forward them to the relevant ministries. Simultaneously, we arrange an entry permit for you, which remains valid for 2 months. If you are abroad when the permit is issued, you must arrive before the permit expires.

  • Changing visa status

    The moment you set foot in the UAE, a specific status is allocated to you. In most cases, you can enter the country either as a tourist or a resident. If you are abroad when your entry permit is issued, your status will automatically change to “non-tourist” upon border crossing. If your entry permit is issued while you are already in the UAE, the status is changed manually.

  • Undergoing a medical examination

    Undergoing a medical examination is a compulsory step in the process of applying for any kind of visa. The medical examination includes blood analysis and fluorography.

  • Submission of biometric data

    Submission of biometric data is yet another obligatory step. This procedure must be completed in the UAE. Essentially, you just need to provide your fingerprints.

  • Issuance of a resident visa

    All paperwork is coordinated through the immigration service. Provided everything has been prepared accurately, the ministries will give their approval and issue the visa.

  • Acquisition of an Emirates ID

    Once your visa is issued, you will be given a plastic card with a unique identification number for accessing services within the UAE.
