As part of the United Arab Emirates’ goal of building more competitiveness across sectors and to enhance the excellence of the healthcare system, the Golden Visa might get extended to all resident doctors. This is a long-term, renewable visa plan to bring sustainable workforce to the UAE and incentivise them to stay here and work. The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) is the authority behind the introduction a range of Golden Residency services to make it easier for doctors in the UAE to get golden visas. The services will aid in the grant of 10-year residency visas to doctors and their families, in keeping with the UAE government's objective of enhancing the country's worldwide competitiveness as a preferred destination for work, living, and education, as well as an incubator of talent and academic excellence. This, the acting Director General of the ICA explains, is incentivising good citizens and encouraging the UAE’s “first line of defence”. This is to be done in collaboration with Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) to identify registered doctors properly and distribute the benefits of this scheme.
