On Monday, October 3, 2022, the new visa regulations for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) went into effect.
A conventional 60-day entry permit, rather than a 30-day one, is one of the new visas, as is a five-year, multiple-entry tourist visa that permits travelers to stay in the nation for up to 90 days straight.
A job exploration entrance visa for degree holders that doesn’t require a sponsor or host is also being introduced by the UAE. These five-year green visas are intended for skilled employees, independent contractors, and the self-employed.
Male children can now be sponsored by their parents until the age of 25, allowing them to continue living in the UAE after graduating from high school and college.
The new regulations will enable holders of Golden Visas to sponsor members of their families, including spouses and children, regardless of their ages, and to invest in domestic workers for support services without any restrictions, in addition to guaranteeing their right to remain in the UAE for a period of ten years.
In addition, the limitation on how long a person may stay outside of the United Arab Emirates has been lifted.
In the case that the original holder of the Golden Residence passes away, there are additional privileges for family members that permit them to remain in the UAE until the end of the permit’s validity.
The latest version of the UAE passport was introduced by the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security last month. A polycarbonate data page constructed employing intricate spectrum patterns is one of the new passport’s improved security features.
Since the Emirati “introduced a new visa regime and has stopped issuing tourist visas to persons under the age of 40 years, except for those applying for family visas,” the Nigerian foreign ministry announced last month that Nigerians under the age of 40 will no longer be issued visas for travel to the United Arab Emirates.
The United Arab Emirates started awarding visas to Nigerians in the first few days of August after outright prohibitions were put in place as a result of violence between the rival cult groups Eiye and Aiye in Dubai and Sharjah.
The new guidelines specify that Nigerians need to have verified hotel reservations, a six-month bank statement that shows both financial inflows and outflows, and a confirmed return ticket confirmation in order to travel to the middle eastern country.
