As Dubai continues to drive global travel recovery and growth, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) – Dubai, in cooperation with Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) has launched a five-year multiple-entry visa for employees of multinational companies, to further accelerate momentum across tourism and all other business sectors.
This is the latest in a series of initiatives to create new opportunities for professionals and talented individuals across the world to grow and thrive. The city has been steadily rising in status among the world’s biggest metropolises as a hub for travel, business, investment, and talent, offering visitors an experience that is not only productive for work and business but also enriching in terms of lifestyle and culture.
The visa will further simplify visa application procedures, provide ease of access to the city and extend the duration of stay of international visitors. It is especially beneficial to employees of foreign-owned firms as it enables them to participate in events, conferences, training courses, exhibitions, and similar activities hosted in Dubai by these companies.
Under this visa, visitors can stay in the UAE for 90 days, with the option of extending their stay for another 90 days. The visa joins other new categories of visas and programs launched by Dubai including the Golden Visa for entrepreneurs and property and business investors, as well as the Retire in Dubai and Virtual Working programs, which provide more flexibility and options for talent looking to work and reside in Dubai.
