Have you heard about a visa for retirement? It’s real and the UAE is bringing it for you. The UAE is offering Dubai retirement visas for those who want to have a great time during their retirement in the country that has so much scope for quality indulgence. It’s like a renewable visitor visa that gives you the opportunity to enjoy the experience of the exciting destination that is Dubai.
In fact, the UAE retirement visa is one of a kind and any retiree or resident outside UAE aged over 55 years can apply for it. It’s not the one-month visa that Dubai issues for visits. The validity of the Retirement visa is 5 years and is renewable under certain terms and conditions.
The retiree must have valid medical insurance (international insurance) that covers the UAE. The retiree must also have a monthly income of Dh 20,000 earned from pension or investments to qualify for the visa program. Or else, the retiree must either have a balance of Dh 1 million or have a real estate in Dubai worth Dh 2 million.
What’s even better is that the visa is not only available to the retiree but also to the retiree’s spouse and children!
This is indeed the best opportunity to explore Dubai for many fascinating reasons. Let’s list them for you.
