In the UAE a person (or someone who can sponsor the person) needs a UAE Residence Visa to sign a tenancy contract, open a bank account and get an Emirates ID.  This means that people’s everyday lives and routines are put on hold in a way for at least 3 weeks while they are waiting for their residence visa to be issued.  Halving this “waiting period” will be much appreciated by employers as well as employees.

A foreign investor can obtain a UAE Investor Visa with two ways:

  1. Create a UAE Free Zone Company – meaning that you do not have to purchase a property in the UAE to get your visa.  This is the most convenient and efficient option and means that you will obtain a 3 year, renewable UAE Residency Visa. The UAE Free Zone is your visa and it will state owner, partner or investor as the designation – we recommend this option – Contact Us for Your UAE Company Formation
  2. Buy a UAE real estate, and obtain a residence visa in the UAE.  Furthermore, enjoy attractive rental yields and capital appreciation – Contact Kotsomitis Real Estate LLC to Buy a UAE Real Estate
