Live in Dubai and work anywhere in the world!

Dubai has launched a new Virtual Working Programme for overseas professionals and entrepreneurs, which offers remote workers and their families the opportunity to relocate to the Emirates.

Dubai is a connected city with a strong digital infrastructure.  It’s also one of the safest places in the world, with a blend of cultures from around the globe. With sandy beaches, incredible dining, and world-class entertainment, you are offered a great quality of life and a range of attractions – with world-class safety and hygiene measures. You will also have access to convenient facilities and resources to help you further your career or grow your business.

Work culture has changed. Many of us don’t need to share an office with our colleagues or employer – so why stay at home when you can work from Dubai? You can come to Dubai on a tourism visa, get acquainted with the city and once you’re ready, you can apply to transfer to the one-year programme. Take a look at some of the experiences on the offer in Dubai.

An added benefit of the programme is that all UAE residents receive COVID-19 vaccinations free of charge, your successful Virtual Working application would make you eligible for this once formalities are completed.

How does it work?

  • The programme is valid for 1 year
  • It costs USD 287, plus medical insurance with valid UAE coverage and processing fee per person

  • You connect to a global hub and a skilled workforce, composed of 200+ nationalities
