Road to the UAE

There are several roads that lead to the UAE

The UAE have clear rules: if you don’t have a job, you have to leave the Emirates. It is possible to visit the Emirates multiple times as a tourist on a 30-day tourist visa. Of course you are not allowed to work on that visa. If you don’t have a job and you’re not an Emirati then you have to leave within 30 days, end of story. But…being the director of your own company is also a job, even in the UAE.

If you want to work in the UAE, there are several roads that lead to the new Rome, Dubai:

  1. You can start your own business, and work there as director of your own company
  2. You can start a company in your home country, and get hired by a UAE company
  3. You can work in the UAE by doing wage labor for a UAE company
  4. You can be detached to the UAE by a company in your home country
