What is a Silver or Golden Visa?

The UAE Golden Visa program is meant for entrepreneurs, real estate investors, and other professionals to work, live and conduct business or study in the UAE without requiring a local sponsor. The 5 year Silver Visa and the 10 year Golden Visa allows foreign business owners and investors to own 100% of their business within the UAE. Both visas can be automatically renewed after the 5 or 10 year term.
