The government has created a step by step approach in which, depending on the quantity of money you contribute, you will get more and more benefits. • Golden visa: Invest $3 million (10 million Emirati dirhams), you will receive a ten years residency permit, also known as a UAE Golden Visa. • Real estate investment: If you want to make a lower investment. This is the right option for you. By purchasing real estate of USD 272,000, you will get a 2 year temporary residence permit. The property must be residential and must be held for at least 3 years. • Business option: The third option would be for you to start a company in the UAE.
