New Delhi, May 4 (IANS) The UAE has introduced new liberalised visa rules and residence scheme aimed to attract global talent and boost the Emirate's economy by supporting its competitiveness.

The new system for residence visas and entry permits provides customised benefits to every category including 10-year Golden Visa holder investors and skilled employees.
The Green visa holders skilled self-employed and freelancers have been further provided five-year residency instead of the earlier two years.
The jobseekers will be benefitted the most by the five-year multi-entry tourist visa that allows them to enter the country several times in a calendar year or stay for 90 days continuously and then extend it for another 90 days.
Moreover, the new visa and residence scheme introduced by the UAE authorities include Business Entry Visa that doesn't require any sponsor or host that will further encourage investors and entrepreneurs alike for exploring investment opportunities in Emirates.
Obviously, all these provisions will provide the expatriates even bigger stake in the UAE economy.
