Dubai is a favorite destination of both holidaymakers and entrepreneurs. There are 2 million people living in Dubai who came from different parts of the world which made it the world’s most cosmopolitan city according to the International Organization for Migration. Dubai can offer you that hard to find work-life balance with a unique mix of suburban and a metropolitan neighborhood. If you are looking forward to making Dubai part of your business expansion or your permanent home soon, here are some tips for you to make the transition easier and quicker:
You can join Dubai growing population of workers
The whole process of bringing your family will be the responsibility of the HR team of the company you are working in. You have to make yourself sorted, wait for the immigration card to be issued so you can fly to the UAE. You may then have to undergo a medical exam and you’re your visa stamped on the passport. With the UAE ID, you can open a bank account, rent a certain property, and secure a tenancy contract.
The next step will be for you to provide new residency documents and attested birth and marriage certificates to the HR team. The team will handle the rest of the process with the help of digital services provided by the government in the Dubai Government’s Smart City program. You can secure the dependent visas for your family in two weeks up to a month. This process will be shorter and quicker if you have been in the UAE in the past and you have secured an immigration stamp on your passport. You can have this by traveling to the UAE for a holiday with the family.
If you plan to move to Dubai for business, you have to go through a completely different process
The first step is for you to figure out the type of business you want as well as the type of trade license you need. You can find all the information on the official UAE government site. There are many organizations in the UAE that can help assist you in a company setup in Dubai. Once you have procured the trade license, you will be able to receive the immigration card for you to enter the UAE and complete the entire residency process.
The difference is in the application of visa for your dependents
You have to prove that you are financially secure and that you are prepared to host a family. You can do this by providing bank statements to the Ministry of Labor. When you have all the documents prepared, you won’t have problems in setting up a company in Dubai and bringing your family to the Gulf Country.
