Dubai starts 5-year multi-entry visa for MNC employees

DUBAI, November 16, 2021

General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) – Dubai, in cooperation with Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) has launched a five-year multi-entry visa for employees of multinational companies, to further accelerate momentum across tourism and all other business sectors.
The new visa is especially beneficial to employees of foreign-owned firms as it enables them to participate in events, conferences, training courses, exhibitions and similar activities hosted in Dubai by these companies.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, said: "It is the latest in a series of initiatives launched by Dubai to create new opportunities for professionals and talented individuals across the world to grow and thrive. The city has been steadily rising in status among the world’s biggest metropolises as a hub for travel, business, investment and talent, offering visitors an experience that is not only productive for work and business but also enriching in terms of lifestyle and culture.'' 
''Dubai seeks to dynamically adapt to evolving global conditions, embrace change and develop innovative initiatives to deliver future growth and offer new avenues for development and transformation, while remaining one of the world’s safest and most secure cities," he added. 
GDRFA-Dubai said it has now fully activated this visa process and has started issuing it to employees of multinational companies, allowing them to visit and stay in the UAE for 90 days, with the option of extending their stay for another 90 days.
