To apply for UAE residence, submit the completed application forms along with the required fees and supporting documents. The obtained Golden Residence visa is valid for 10 years and can be renewed. It remains valid even if the applicant resides outside the UAE.
Once the initial due diligence checks are completed and the retainer is paid, the application for UAE residence can be submitted to the government.
Upon fulfilling the requirements and obtaining initial approval, the successful applicant receives a six-month multiple-entry visa. They can then travel to the UAE, apply for an ID card, and undergo a medical check. Full approval is granted, and the client receives the residence visa.
