After the UAE govt implemented a new system for long-term residence visas in 2019, many foreign citizens have been awarded the Golden Visa.
The UAE's most-coveted visa enables foreign nationals to live, work and study in the country without the need of a national sponsor and with 100 per cent ownership of their business on the UAE’s mainland. These visas are issued for 5 or 10 years and can be renewed automatically.
The Indian Star brings forth a list of distinguished Indians who received the coveted visa in 2021:
1. Sanjay Dutt | Bollywood actor
The 61-year-old actor received the Golden Visa in May this year. Dutt mentioned in news reports that Dubai has become a second home for him since last year. After being treated for cancer, the actor along with his producer-wife Maanyata traveled to Dubai to be with their 10-year-old twins - Shahraan and Iqra.
