  • Emaar (government owned developer) used to give 3 years resident visa for buyers of property worth at least 200,000 dollars.When the crisis hit, the government decided to withdraw these visas and declared only a max of 6 months visa can be granted. When governments change rules on a whim, it is hardly going to restore any trust. Too late guys, the UAE property market is far too risky and changing visa rules will not be enough to restore confidence. In the meantime, far more established property markets have cheapened up enough to possibly attract new buyers. Florida is a good eg. No visa requirements to buy a property there. why on earth would you buy in the UAE ?

  • No visa requirements in Florida? That’s definitely not the case! If as a UK citizen you intend to stay for more than 3 months a year, then you’ll need some kind of residential visa.
