  2. Mission Visa: This 90-day visa is commonly used by foreigners who wish to explore Dubai before committing to a permanent relocation. A sponsoring company is required for this visa.

  3. Specialized Talents Visa: Designed for individuals with expertise in specialized fields such as doctors, scientists, inventors, and artists. An added advantage is that this visa also covers spouses and children.
