Holders of Five-Year and 10-Year Golden Visas in Dubai to Get Privilege Card

In line with the vision of Dubai’s leadership to make Dubai the global city with the best quality of life and further enhance its appeal as the world’s best city to visit, live, work, invest in, and study, Golden Visa holders in Dubai will be gifted the coveted Esaad privilege card.

The Esaad card is issued by the Dubai Police and offers its members a host of exclusive offers and discounts. The card will be provided free of charge to holders of five-year and 10-year Golden Visas in Dubai. The move is part of the emirate’s efforts to enable its citizens and residents to continue enjoying an outstanding quality of life. It also aligns with Dubai’s efforts to create a vibrant and dynamic society.

 So far, 65,000 people in Dubai have benefited from the distinguished Golden Visa since the launch of the long-term residency scheme. Select categories of Golden Visa holders in Dubai will receive the Esaad card. These categories include investors in public investment funds, real estate investors, entrepreneurs, people with specialised talents and researchers in science and knowledge, such as scientists, doctors, specialists, inventors, and creative people in culture and art. They will also include executive directors, specialised academics, professional sportspeople, PhD degree holders specialising in engineering or science, humanitarian aid workers, and outstanding university and high-school graduates.

 The Esaad card provides extensive benefits and discounts across several sectors, including healthcare, education, hospitality, entertainment, real estate, and restaurants, among others. Exclusive offers and discounts are available for cardholders at 7,237 brands and businesses within the UAE and across 92 countries worldwide.

 H.E. Abdulla Mohammed Al Basti, secretary general, Executive Council of Dubai, said, “This initiative supports the leadership’s vision to make Dubai the world’s best city to live in. It also aligns with their directives to provide Golden residency holders with a range of incentives in addition to the stability that the long-term visa offers. The stability and incentives will, in turn, encourage holders of the Golden Visa to continue contributing to Dubai’s wider economy. They will also help the city attract fresh and exceptional talent from across the world.”
