His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said the new scheme aims to "strengthen the UAE’s status as a global economic capital".
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.
