The Cabinet has approved a new entry visa system on Sunday. This system seeks to attract qualified and talented professionals to the UAE. It will be carried out in phases, said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai.
Seeking Global & Regional Talent
The first phase of the new system will begin with education, health, and tourism visas. The second phase will then focus on targeting professionals in the fields of science, research, and medicine, among others. Special committees have been set up to prioritize these fields as well as to make plans for attracting regional and global talent.
In return, these professionals will enjoy the benefits of living in the UAE, such as state-of-the-art infrastructure, practical financial policies, and a dynamic lifestyle.
