To support the goals of the UAE government, Jafza is offering facilities to obtain long-term visas for its customers in order to allow them to better attract and retain high calibre talent within the UAE.
This initiative applies to a range of investors, entrepreneurs, researchers, and other specialists and innovators. The goal is to promote Dubai as a destination for highly skilled individuals in a wide variety of fields.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and MD – DP World, UAE Region and CEO of Jafza said: “Nurturing and curating talent has been a core part of Jafza’s business ethos, and we have continually strived to create a work environment that rewards innovation, proactiveness and productivity. This, in turn, is a part of our larger goal of assisting the Dubai government to achieve its aims per the vision and guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai a global hub for innovators through the development of a sustainable yet diversified economy.
“Innovation has always been the core of our nation’s progress and is one of the primary reasons the UAE has managed to successfully bring in the quality of people it has over the decades. We believe this initiative is a step in the right direction that will help us maintain our status amongst the global community.”
This 10-year visa is a great move by the UAE government. Businessmen will feel even more confident, with the UAE once again being very pragmatic in its approach to the business community. We are indeed delighted to be living in the UAE.
This is the beginning of a new chapter for the UAE, as it further liberalises the economy to attract more investment. Initiatives such as the 10-year visa and 100 percent ownership of companies in selected economic sectors are game-changing developments that will re-define our relationship with this wonderful land of opportunitiesRizwan Sajan, Chairman, Danube Group
