The UAE had first announced multiple entry visit visas for tourists in January last year.
Sheikh Mohammed had said then that the first-of-its-kind visa is aimed at establishing the UAE as a major ‘global tourism destination’.
In the meeting, the UAE Prime Minister has also announced a remote work visa that lets overseas remote working professionals reside in the UAE as they connect to work abroad virtually.
“The residency permit meant 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”, said HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.
