Initiatives to attract global talent to the UAE have already started, with the launch of an array of new visas.
Earlier this week, the new ‘green visa’ was unveiled by Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, the Minister of State for Foreign Trade for the UAE, and would be available to investors, entrepreneurs, highly skilled individuals, top students and graduates.
The visa will also enable its holders to sponsor their parents and children under the age of 25. In addition, the green visa will also offer the holder an extended grace period of 90 to 180 days if cancelled due to job loss or retirement.
Similarly, the golden visa which was launched two years ago targets highly talented individuals and will allow individuals to live in the UAE for a period of 10 years and the visa is renewable every decade.
As the UAE celebrates its 50th year, the country is not slowing down by any means when it comes to looking ahead to the next half-century.
