The United Arab Emirates (UAE) offers many opportunities for foreign investors looking to invest in property. One such opportunity is the residency visa, which can be obtained by investing in property in the UAE.

In this blog post, we will outline the requirements for obtaining a residency visa through property investment in the UAE.

-The value of the property must be at least AED 1 million (approximately USD 272,000).
-The property must be located in a freehold area.
-The property must be purchased in the investor’s own name.
-The investor must have a valid passport and bank account statements from the last 6 months.

Once the above requirements have been met, foreign investors can apply for their residency visas by submitting the required documents to the nearest UAE embassy or consulate. The documents required for a residency visa application are as follows:
