Has the novelty of working from home already worn off? Luckily, working remotely is on the rise and countries all around the world are starting to offer visas to digital nomads. Dubai has joined the list and is helping to shake things up with a new one-year virtual working program that allows you to live and work in one of the most dynamic cities in the world. Their new virtual program will grant remote workers and their families to stay in Dubai for up to one year.
Besides being one of the safest places in the world, Dubai offers beautiful beaches, incredible restaurants, and world-class entertainment. With over 200 different nationalities living in one place, it is sure to be an exciting adventure.
How to Apply
In order to apply, you will have to prove that you earn a minimum of $5,000 per month, and that you have private health insurance valid abroad, as well as a document certifying your current employment with a minimum contract of one year.
What Does it Cost?
The application fee is $278 and doesn't include medical insurance or processing fees. However, once you are in Dubai, you will benefit from access to public services, utilities, telecoms, and schooling options. Don't forget, current entry to Dubai is only possible with a negative PCR test which will bring your total cost up a bit more.
