Given the circumstances, Dubai has launched a new Virtual Working Programme for its overseas remote working professionals which allow them to live in the city while continuing to serve their employers in their home countries. This also allows remote workers to relocate to the emirate along with their families on an annual basis.
Remote workers can take advantage of Dubai’s digital infrastructure, connectivity, global networking opportunities and zero income tax for individuals. Dubai recently introduced Dubai Assured’ stamp to certify that establishments have implemented all public health protocols for the prevention and management of COVID-19.
The programme costs USD 287 plus medical insurance with valid UAE coverage and processing fee per person. Dubai is the first major global destination to fully open up its meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions sector internationally, providing opportunities for networking events and face-to-face engagement, which are vital factors in accelerating the revival of key sectors.
