How to Get a Golden Visa

To apply, prepare a package of documents and submit it with the application to relevant state authorities. Requirements depend on:

  • Your visa basis
  • The legislation of the specific emirate

For instance, creative professionals should apply to the UAE Ministry of Culture, while property investors must approach the Dubai Land Department (DLD) or equivalent in another emirate.

Can I Apply for a Visa on My Own?

Applying independently involves rigorous scrutiny by UAE authorities to maintain international prestige and safety. Errors, typos, or incomplete documentation can lead to application rejection.

There are important considerations for each Golden Visa type, highlighting the need for experienced professionals well-versed in UAE law and local authority dealings.
