Getting a visa in Dubai

Investing in real estate in Dubai gives the buyer the right to receive residency in the UAE for 2, 5 or 10 years. The 2-year visa is given to those who acquire ready property worth at least AED 750K (USD 205K), while the 10-year visa can be obtained with a minimum property purchase of AED 2M (USD 545K). The 5-year visa is a pensioner’s visa for foreigners aged 55 and older who have invested a sum of AED 1M (USD 272K) or more.

All three types of visas allow the holder to sponsor a spouse, children and parents. These visas can also be extended provided the holder remains the owner of the property.

Receiving a visa on the basis of purchasing an off-plan property can only be done with the approval of the Dubai Land Department (DLD).


Getting a visa in Abu Dhabi

Purchasing a ready property in Abu-Dhabi with a minimum value of AED 2M (USD 545K) gives the buyer the right to obtain a 10-year Golden Visa. This visa covers the entire family — spouses, children and parents — as well as domestic staff. Once the visa is received, the holder is required to take out a medical insurance policy.


Getting a visa in Ras Al Khaimah

Property owners in Ras Al Khaimah with real estate valued at AED 2M (USD 545K) and above have the right to obtain a 10-year Golden Visa residence. It allows the holder to sponsor a husband or wife, children, parents, and domestic staff.
The experts at Metropolitan Consulting can help answer any questions related to receiving the investor visa.


Grounds for Residence Visas

For an extended stay in the United Arab Emirates, all foreigners except for citizens of the Commonwealth of the Arabian Gulf require a residence visa, which also enables you to obtain an Emirates ID.

Depending on the grounds and place of issue, the visa can be valid for 2–10 years, after which it can be renewed for the same period.

METROPOLITAN CONSULTING provides residency visa support services for both employees of companies registered in the country and property owners in the UAE. We assist our clients with the collection of the required documents and accompany you through the entire process from A to Z.


Talent Visa

The Golden Talent Visa is a long-term resident visa that allows talented expats to live, work or study in the UAE with exclusive benefits. Investors, entrepreneurs, academics, distinguished students and graduates are among those eligible for this visa.
