Source Title: foreign media: UAE will grant citizenship to foreign investors and professionals
Beijing, January 30 (Reuters) – on the 30th local time, the government of the United Arab Emirates said it had passed an amendment to allow foreign investors, scientists, doctors and other professionals and their families to acquire citizenship in the United Arab Emirates.
According to reports, the vice president of the United Arab Emirates said on personal social media on the 30th local time: “the cabinet of the United Arab Emirates, the local Amiri court and the executive committee will set clear criteria according to various categories in order to nominate people who are eligible for citizenship. ”
He also said the law would allow foreigners with UAE passports to continue to retain their own citizenship.
It is unclear whether foreigners who have obtained UAE passports can benefit from the UAE’s public welfare system. The UAE spends billions of dollars a year to provide free education, health care, housing loans and grants to about 1.4 million citizens.
