UAE Grants Resident Doctors 10-Year Golden Residency Visa

UAE is granting all its resident doctors a 10-year golden visa.

Following the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has launched a series of Golden Residency services to facilitate issuing golden visa to doctors living in the country.

This will help in granting physicians and their families 10-year residency visas.

Major General Suhail Saeed Al Khaili, Acting Director-General of the ICA, was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times that offering the Golden Residency to all UAE-based doctors and their families is an expression of good citizenship and appreciation for the efforts of the UAE’s ‘First Line of Defence’, who effectively contributed to the driving the country's efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic and ensure public safety.
