IMPACT – MEDIUM
Authorities in the United Arab Emirates are expected to implement extended visas to attract top international talent, including scientists, engineers, doctors, investors and university graduates.
Additional information: The package of visa reforms was approved by the UAE Cabinet in May and June and is awaiting implementation by relevant authorities.
BAL Analysis: The changes will help the UAE retain highly qualified experts and investors. Students, who currently lose their student status upon graduation, will also be able to remain in the country to seek work or other opportunities. The changes are expected to be implemented before the end of the year and employers should anticipate some processing delays as the government introduces several major reforms.
