UAE’s new law announces citizenship for investors, skilled professionals

In a historic move, UAE on Saturday announced major changes to its citizenship law, allowing for the naturalisation of foreign investors, doctors, scientists, artists and talented people and their families. The change in the citizenship law aims to ensure the social stability of the people in the country and boost the overall national development process.

The decision specified the categories of the people who can be granted citizenship, under certain conditions.

The law allows for the recipients to also keep their current citizenship, which is a major change to the previous rule that doesn’t allow for dual citizenship.

The condition provided for investors is that they are required to own a property in the UAE.
