New Opportunity for Remote Workers: UAE Announces Virtual Work Residence Visa

The United Arab Emirates' (UAE) Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICP) has announced that remote workers can apply for a virtual work residence visa from their current location, according to Gulf Today. The visa, which is valid for one year and can be renewed, allows individuals to work from the UAE without the need for a sponsor. To apply, individuals can use the UAEICP website or smart application, but must enter the country within 60 days of receiving their entry permit.

Applicants must have a passport with a minimum validity of six months, a recent photograph, and health insurance to cover their stay in the UAE. They must also provide proof of employment with a contract valid for one year and a minimum salary of $3,500 or its equivalent, along with the salary slip from the previous month and bank statements from the past three months. About AED350 is he fee for the virtual working program per person.


Remote work has become a trend due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with companies adapting to this new way of working and offering flexible arrangements to attract and retain top talent. Communication devices such as instant messaging and video conferencing have also become essential. However, there are also concerns about the long-term impact on the economy and job market. Despite this, remote work has opened up new job opportunities and allowed companies to hire employees from anywhere in the world.

In December 2022, Airbnb launched a remote working hub in Dubai in partnership with the Department of Economy and Tourism. The city is a leader in facilitating remote work, and the hub aims to make it easier for people to work and travel while also benefiting the local economy.


Generally, remote work has already had a significant impact on the way we work and live, and it is likely to continue in the future. Companies must find ways to adapt to this new way of working and overcome the challenges that come with it.
