There is not just one type of visa that will work for everything. You will have to apply for the type of visa that best fits your needs. Here’s a look at the different options:
1. Business Visa
This visa is for anyone who wants to start a business in Dubai or has professional experience. This visa is good for six months.
2. Mission Visa
This visa is good for 90-days. Most foreigners use this visa to explore the area before they commit to relocating. A company will have to sponsor this visa.
3. Persons with Specialized Talents
This visa is meant for people that work in a specialized field like doctors, scientists, inventors, and artists. One big advantage of this visa is that spouses and children are also covered under it.
4. Self-Employment Visas
This visa is just like it sounds, it’s for people who are self-employed and work for themselves. You may also hear this visa referred to as a freelance visa. There are several people that fall under this type of visa like: property investors, entrepreneurs, investors in public investments of at least 10 million AED, and more. Unlike other visas, there isn’t an employer to sponsor this visa, so you’ll have to apply for it through a free zone, through an established company by working as a contractor, or through an individual.
