Nigerians, others granted residence permit in UAE

In what will be a welcome development to Nigerians, the UAE has announced a residence permit for remote workers of all nationalities.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the Emirati Vice President and Prime Minister, announced via his Twitter handle, saying it’s a approving a multiple-entry pathway tourist system for people to come live and work in the Gulf nation.

He explained that the introduction of the new residency permit means that “any employee anywhere in the world can reside in the UAE to practice work remotely even if the company is not present in the country.”

“During a cabinet meeting I chaired, we approved a new remote work visa that enables employees from all over the world to live and work remotely from the UAE even if their companies are based in another country,” he said.

This decision comes in the wake of the work-from-home policy widely accepted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It also comes after the UAE government made its laws more flexible for foreigners, such as loosening alcohol restriction and allowing unmarried couples to cohabit.

Earlier this year, the government also announced that citizenship was being offered to foreign investors and other gifted professionals to boost its economy amidst the pandemic.
