This came as Sheikh Mohammed chaired a Cabinet meeting on Sunday.

He had also announced a remote work visa that lets overseas remote working professionals reside in the UAE as they connect to work abroad virtually.

The new visa schemes are the latest in a string of reforms announced recently to boost the economy and help investors, entrepreneurs, qualified individuals and families.

The UAE had first announced multiple entry visit visas for tourists in January last year.

Sheikh Mohammed had said then that the first-of-its-kind visa is aimed at establishing the UAE as a major 'global tourism destination'.
