The United Arab Emirates on Sunday (Sept 5) announced a ‘green visa’ for overseas working professionals allowing expatriates to seek jobs without the mandatory sponsorship to help the country's economy.

This ‘green visa’ is also aimed at reducing the Emirate’s dependency on oil. The expatriates generally experience issues while looking for long-haul residency in the country. The ‘green visa’ provisions envisage that outsiders will actually want to work in the country without being supported by a business.
