The United Arab Emirates has approved new executive regulations relating to the Federal Decree-Law on Foreigner Entry and Residence. The Emirati Cabinet has announced amended entry and residence laws, which include 10 categories of entry visas with simplified requirements.

"The new system for residence visas and entry permits offers new types of residence permits for investors, skilled employees, self-employment and family members. The new types provide customized benefits to each category," UAEGOV tweeted.
