Dubai Working Visa

A work visa is the most typical route to obtain a UAE resident visa. Dubai work visas are used by the majority of expats in Dubai who have residency permits. The employer processes the work permit as soon as a person is offered a job so that the employee can begin working for the company. Following the approval of the work permit, the immigration procedure for the issuing of the entry permit is presented.

It’s vital to understand that this green visa is unrelated to the work licenses issued by the company. Rather, it is targeted at highly qualified individuals whose skills will assist UAE firms and industries. It will also make it easier for investors, entrepreneurs, top students, and graduates to work here, as well as provide family members residency rights.

The benefits of the new green visa, for example, will include a grace period of 90 to 180 days after the visa expires, allowing holders to continue working without being interrupted by the need to deal with visa-related issues. Problems. The existing regulation provides for a 30-day grace period.

The purchase value (not the current market value) of your property needs to be at least AED 1,000,000 or above, and you have paid off a 50% mortgage (you should be mentioned as the property owner).
