How to move to the UAE for permanent residence.
The issue of permanent residence has long been discussed in the Gulf countries, which rely on foreign expatriates, including qualified and unskilled labor to support economic growth.
The UAE and Dubai, in particular, is a popular destination for tourists and expats, especially after the economy here began to show clear signs of recovery after the economic downturn. It is worth noting that Dubai recently won a competition for the Expo 2020, which is expected to be attended by 2.5 million people, mostly from other countries. This can lead to the emergence of thousands of new jobs over the next few years, as the country prepares to host this long-awaited event.
If you want to move to the UAE for permanent residence, then you most likely want to obtain the citizenship of this country. Perhaps the biggest attraction of a UAE citizen passport is that the government of this country is serious about supporting the local population. For local residents, they offer substantial subsidies for the purchase of housing, free education for children, substantial discounts on food and lower prices for utilities than for non-citizens of the UAE. In general, UAE citizens can enjoy a high standard of living compared to most expats who choose to live and work here. So it is not surprising that there are constant protests in the UAE against the government due to immigration laws that prohibit emigrants from obtaining citizenship.
Many people argue that those who live here for most of their lives own real estate, invest in the economy and actively contribute to improving the life of the country, must provide citizenship automatically. It’s really strange when someone lived in the UAE for 40-50 years, bought a house here and spent most of their savings, but can not get citizenship and retire here.
Many people refuse to buy a house in the UAE, knowing that even though they own real estate, it will never be their home forever. The citizenship of the UAE frees people from the constant threat of leaving the country in the event of job loss or the constant hassle over the extension of a resident visa every three years. Citizenship also provides them with a guarantee that they can retire in a country they love and call their home.
It should be clarified that the UAE does not offer expats a permanent residence permit, as in many other countries of the world: you are either a citizen of the United Arab Emirates (usually by birth, both parents must be UAE citizens) or not. Until now, the UAE government does not want to open citizenship to emigrants in fear that it will dilute the emirate culture and national identity and lead to a huge burden on social security schemes, which are mainly used by UAE citizens who make up a small percentage of the country’s total population.
What you need to move to permanent residence in the UAE.
The main requirement for a permanent life in the UAE is the presence of a resident visa. Currently, a resident visa in the UAE requires sponsorship by the employer and must be renewed every three years. You can change jobs and keep the opportunity to reside in the country until your new employer issues a new visa for you. The visa can be extended as many times as you need until you reach the retirement age, after which it can not be extended.
Keep in mind that if you left the country for more than six months, you will need to apply for a new resident visa.
How to obtain the citizenship of the UAE.
There are several ways in which foreigners can obtain the right to UAE citizenship, but strict laws make getting citizenship very difficult.
The spouse of a person who has the citizenship of the UAE can obtain citizenship after ten years of marriage, during which he must provide evidence that the marriage is genuine, and not issued only to obtain the status of a citizen. Foreign children of UAE citizens are automatically considered citizens of this country, but since the UAE does not allow dual citizenship, they will have to refuse foreign passports if they want to have a passport of the UAE.
