Dubai has launched a unique new program that enables overseas remote working professionals to live in Dubai while continuing to serve their employers in their home country.
The move offers remote workers – and their families – the opportunity to re-locate, on an annual basis, to one of the world’s leading tourism and business destinations. Remote workers can take advantage of emirate’s strong digital infrastructure, robust connectivity, safe and high-quality lifestyle, global networking opportunities, and zero income tax for individuals.
Dubai, and the UAE, have been recognized for setting a global model for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) awarded Dubai the Safe Travels Stamp in acknowledgment of its efforts to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and COVID-19 precautionary measures. The emirate also introduced the ‘Dubai Assured’ stamp to certify that establishments have implemented all public health protocols for the prevention and management of COVID-19.
Furthermore, Dubai has an exceptional digital infrastructure, validated by its No. 1 global ranking in e-infrastructure in the latest Digital Quality of Life (DQL) survey. The new program also provides an enhanced value proposition for start-ups, entrepreneurs, and SMEs.
