Advantages of Applying for Dubai Residence Visa

  • The visa legally entitles you to stay in Dubai for a period of two years. Beyond this period, you may get your visa renewed without any hassle and continue staying in the city. However, to maintain the visa validity, it is mandatory to enter Dubai once every six months.
  • The visa also permits foreigners applying for residency in Dubai to bring their family along (spouse and kids).
  • Both the residence visa and work permit are generally issued to the applicant together. Also, an ID card is granted that serves the purpose of identification during your stay in Dubai. It can be used instead of a passport.
