MIGRATING TO THE UAE, HERE ARE THE GOLDEN/GREEN VISA ELIGIBILITY EXPANSION
When the Golden Visa eligibility was announced last year the scheme was granted to Medical practitioners, Scientists, Innovators, Researchers, Investors and Entrepreneurs in various fields as stated by the official Emirates News Agency.
The main point of the Golden Visa is that it allows an expert ten years residency in the United Arab Emirates without the need for renewal or reissue.
THE GREEN VISA REGIME
After the UAE authorities successfully introduced the Golden Visa Eligibility Expansion for various categories of experts the country in 2021 move further by creating Green Visa which enables highly skilled immigrants to sponsor themselves. This is a complete break from the past system which make it compulsory for an immigrant to depend on their employer to stand as a sponsor. A system that disallowed or make it difficult for any freedom of changing employment and almost permanently tied to an employer.
The Green Visa system differentiate between a work permit and a resident Visa. The Green visa was announced mainly for highly skilled professionals, investors, innovators, postgraduates students and exceptionally talented students. It is also designed to ease visa restrictions for freelancers, widows and divorced immigrants.
The high point of the Green visa as stated earlier is to make the holder independent and give them the power to sponsor their Dad and Mon. Likewise, the Green Visa holder can sponsor their children of twenty-five years old, unlike the usual practice of 18 years limitations.
Furthermore, the Green Visa eliminated the issue of forced exits, when an employer terminated or an employee desired to change employment under the previous system he or she may be forced to exit the country and get a new job in the UAE within a month.
THE FREELANCER VISA
The Freelancer Visa is functioning in conjunction with the Green Visa in that it is a system that allows a permanent resident or legally resident that have families who desire to live and working or studying in the UAE to obtain a long-term residence for them without recourse to an Emirati employer or sponsor. As an independently employed person, you enjoy the freedom of sponsoring yourself and your dependents.
Under the new system, these are the other regulatory changes:
The extension of business trip permits formerly three months now expanded to six months.
Sponsorship of parents under the visa of immediate family members.
One year residency extension for humanitarian cases
Extension of children’s age limit on parent’s residency from 18 to 25 years.
Extension of grace period upon job loss or retirement from 90 to 180 days.
Finally, the new system ease visa relation restrictions which is making it attractive for foreign investors and exceptionally talented people to live and work in the United Arab Emirates without a sponsor. The ice on the cake is that the Holder of the Freelancer Visa enjoys 100 per cent ownership of their business.
The Green Visa and The Freelancer Visa are the main legislative changes being introduced by The United Arab Emirates as part of “Projects of the 50” which is a restructuring of the entry and residency operations.
