UAE announces citizenship for investors, medical doctors, skilled professionals, scientists and talented people.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has announced changes to citizenship law.
”The new directives aim to attract talents that contribute to our development journey,” he tweeted.
The UAE Cabinet, local Emiri courts and executive councils will nominate those eligible for the citizenship “under clear criteria set for each category”, he explained.
The law allows receivers of the UAE passport to keep their existing citizenship.
The decision to give people with exceptional talents and their families the Emirati citizenship aims to embrace them as members of part of the UAE society, ensure the social stability of these people in the country and boost the overall national development process.
