The Response To HH Sheikh Mohammed Giving Permanent Residency To Non-Emiratis Has Been Immensely Positive
It's barely been a week since granting permanent residency in Dubai was announced, but the people haven't been able to STOP talking about it.
The granting of permanent residency has been a long-awaited dream for non-Emirati residents of the city.
The Golden Card, as announced by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will be giving out the 'golden card status' for investors and entrepreneurs to be granted permanent residency in the UAE. The best part is they no longer have to be Emirati to be given this.
Are you shook, or are you SHOOK?
The reaction has, so far, been incredible!
I know quite a few talented people (academe, engineering, investors) have been put off to move to Dubai because other competing countries give them PR.— Jonha Richman (@JonhaRichman) May 21, 2019
This is a great move to encourage more productive and collaborate people to move in an already flourishing country. Thank you!

Wonderful initiative. Most of these residents from all walks of life, countries and creed have given their all into the building up of and success of the UAE. My best wishes.— Najma (@Najma72945232) May 21, 2019
While others have their fingers crossed that long-time expats will soon be granted permanent residency
His highness, I am living in Dubai since 1974. This is my real home. Please come up with life time visas for people like me who have spent their entire life here.— Ali Asgar (@alnetcoms) May 21, 2019
Regardless, people are still ALL for this new initiative
