United Arab Emirates Residency.

Why The United Arab Emirates?

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federal country made of seven emirates located in the Middle East, in Western Asia, bordering Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran. 

A vital transit point for world crude oil and natural gas reserves, the region is also a major regional trading and maritime hub, with the climate categorized as that of a desert. 

The international airport of Dubai is the busiest and in 2014 topped the level of transit of London’s Heathrow. 

Most recently construction works have been started for a 1,200 km country-wide rail network.  The state has no income tax and lower rates than usual for other tax levies. 

Between 2014 and 2018, tourism emerged as a major income source, with world class accommodation and food, a lively sporting community from Formula One and camel racing, to tennis and golfing.  

Developments in education, information and communication, arts and recreation, together with real estate sectors have seen significant overperformance in terms of growth.
