Why Choose a UAE Golden Visa

  • Live in a country that offers an extremely high quality of life – miles of beaches, year-long sunshine, state-of-the-art buildings, and multicultural cities 

  • Low and no-tax living – personal income tax is still 0% and corporate tax is low if it applies to your corporation (and if it doesn’t, you may be able to operate tax-free) 

  • Long-lasting – for most, the Golden Visa will last for 10 years 

  • No local sponsor needed – you don’t need to find someone in the UAE to give you permission to call the UAE home 

  • 100% business ownership – Golden Visa holders can own 100% of their business, regardless of where they choose to do business 

  • Getting your family visas isn’t difficult, you can bring your immediate family, parent(s), and even your nanny or other in-house help all over easily.

  • No minimum residency – you can come and go as you please without worrying about whether or not you’re spending enough time in the country. This is ideal for those who like to travel, travel a lot for work, or both!
