Dubai sees spike in Golden Visas

Dubai has seen a spike in Golden Visas.

The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs of Dubai has announced that the emirate witnessed a 52 percent increase in the issuance of these visas during the first half of the year.

What's more, there's been a 63 percent increase in the issuance of residency visas for the year.

Allied to this, Dubai - which is already one of the world's most popular destinations - has seen a tourism growth of 21 percent.

Dubai has made a concerted effort to become a global tourism hotspot over recent decades, and new data shows that the emirate is making a healthy recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

Earlier this year, Issam Kazim, the CEO of the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, observed that the emirate appeals to a wide range of tourists.

Kazim told the Khaleej Times: "Dubai’s rich offering makes even luxury travel affordable, with a host of options for budget-conscious travellers ranging from discounted stays at luxury hotels to fine dining experiences."

Kazim also noted that Dubai is home to a great range of hotels, offering great value for money and a first-class service.

Dubai has also become a must-visit destination for celebrities and sports stars in recent years.

Speaking about the emirate and its unique appeal, he said: "Dubai provides mid-range hotels that match the service and amenities of many prominent full-service hotels around the globe, further enhancing the destination’s appeal for those in search of value for money during their stay, without compromising on the quality of the overall experience."
