The UAE has announced major changes to the citizenship law. As per the new amendment, investors, professionals, special talents and their families can acquire the Emirati nationality and passport, provided certain conditions are met. Dual citizenship is another attractive feature.
Categories that come under the amendment include;
Artists and their families
Conditions that must be met in each category
Investors: Must own a property in the country
Doctors and specialists: Must have specialization in a unique scientific discipline or a scientific principle that is on high demand in the country. In addition to this, the applicant should have acknowledged scientific contributions, studies and research of scientific value and a minimum practical experience of 10 years. They must also have membership in a reputable organization in their field of specialization.
Scientists: Must be an active researcher in a university or research centre or in the private sector and should have minimum 10 years of experience in the same field. The applicant should have made some contributions as well in the scientific field, such as winning a prestigious scientific award, or securing substantial funding for their research. A recommendation letter from recognized scientific institutions in the UAE is also a must to apply for the citizenship.
Inventors: Inventors must have one or more patents approved by the UAE Ministry of Economy or any other reputable international body, along with a recommendation letter from the Economy Ministry.
Intellectuals and artists: Must be exceptional in the culture and arts field and should have won one or more international awards.
People qualified for the citizenship will be nominated via the Emirates’ rulers court, the courts of the crown princes, the executive council in an emirate or the cabinet.
The move is a token of appreciation for the talents and competencies present in the country and it will also attract more intellectuals. This will in turn boost the development of the country.
We are awaiting more details on the conditions that need to be met for each category.
