A "lifetime visa" option is NOT one of the options accessible officially from the UAE Government. Commonly, the validity of the residence visa is from two years to three years, relying upon the jurisdiction. So, what does a lifetime visa mean? There are business set-up companies which fundamentally offer this "visa for life" or a "lifetime investor visa" which aims to offer an assistance through a process of payment for the renewal of visa on your behalf, either every two years or three years.

I am still confused; would you be able to please expound it more?

A particular business set up company can cover the administrative cost for that, within the other charges you pay for, which are incurred as and when your business licenses are renewed. The offer is supposed to be an advertising strategy of some business arrangement advisors which offer a heap of services to encourage more investors and businessmen to start up a new business.

Such offers are provided by some business centers given that the costs for the renewal of visa are quite low, most particularly for the three-year investor visa. The centers pay that cost, instead of the client, and at the time of renewal, they will be collecting the fees for the office rent, sponsorship, and other renewal costs from the clients. The visa renewal cost with Emirates id application for a three-year investor visa is around Dh845.

This package actually becomes popular, particularly during CoVid-19, proving that the pandemic did not hinder the minds of the aspiring individuals from having their own businesses.
