As of November 2022, Dubai had issued more than 150,000 golden visas to real estate investors, businessmen, professionals, scientists, top students and others eligible.

Real estate investors whose asset value has exceeded Dh2 million can apply for the Golden Visa by first having their property assessed through the Dubai Land Department (DLD). They can request an appraisal through DLD Real Estate Services Trust Offices and Dubai REST App and submit the required documents.

After submitting all documents, the Department will assess the property with a fee of Dh4,000 plus Dh10 each for knowledge fee and innovation fee, which can be paid by credit card, cash and ePay. The owner will receive the evaluation certificate via email in 1 to 8 business days.

Importantly, an investor can also apply for long-term residency by combining the value of two or more properties to reach the Dh2 million mark.
