While the specific requirements and conditions may have evolved since then, here are some of the key investment-based visa options that were available:

Property Investment Visa:  This visa category allowed investors who purchased real estate in the UAE above a certain value to apply for long-term residency. The minimum property value requirement varied by emirate, with Dubai and Abu Dhabi typically having higher thresholds.
Investor Visa:  Under this category, individuals who made substantial investments in UAE businesses or established new business ventures were eligible for long-term residency. The specific investment amounts and criteria could vary by emirate and business sector.
Ten-Year Visa:  The UAE introduced a ten-year visa option for investors, entrepreneurs, and skilled professionals in certain fields. To qualify for this visa, investors were typically required to meet specific investment criteria, and the business needed to contribute to the UAE’s economic development.
Five-Year Renewable Visa:  Investors in various sectors, including real estate, could obtain a five-year renewable visa, provided they met the relevant investment thresholds and other requirements.


Stability and Security:  Long-term residency provides stability and security in a country known for its political and economic stability. It allows residents to live and work.
Investment Opportunities:  Long-term visa can facilitate your ability to invest in businesses, real estate, and other sectors, potentially leading to significant returns.
Access to Healthcare and Education:  Long-term residents often have access to the UAE’s world-class healthcare and education systems. 
Business and Employment Freedom:  With a long-term visa, you have the freedom to start, manage, or work for a company without the constraints of short-term visas.
No Income Tax:  UAE does not impose income tax on residents, making it attractive for individuals and businesses alike.
