Do you want to combine business and leisure in Dubai? With a one-year virtual work program, you can live and work on the beach and enjoy the sunshine in one of the most active cities in the world.

Why work remotely in Dubai?

Dubai is an interconnected city with a strong digital infrastructure. It is also one of the safest places in the world, integrating cultures from all parts of the world. 

With sandy beaches, incredible dining venues and world-class entertainment venues, you will get world-class safety and hygiene measures to enjoy quality life and a range of attractions.

You will also be able to use convenient facilities and resources to help you further develop your career or develop your business. The work culture has changed. Many of us do not need to share an office with colleagues or employers-so why can we stay at home while working in Dubai?

How does it work?

Your virtual working program is valid 1 year.

It costs US$287 plus medical insurance with valid UAE coverage and processing fee per person.

You get access to all required services, including telecoms, utilities, and schooling options.

You connect to a global hub and a skilled workforce, composed of 200+ nationalities.

What are the steps?

Passport with minimum 6 months validity

Health insurance with UAE coverage validity

Proof of Employment from current employer with a one-year contract validity, a minimum of US$5,000 per month salary, last months’ payslip and 3 preceding months’ bank statements

Or, if a company owner, then proof of ownership of company for one year or more, with an average monthly income of US$5,000 per month and 3 preceding months’ bank statements

How safe is Dubai?

Dubai is fully committed to following all guidelines and measures to ensure the health of your family is our top priority. 

Thanks to the safety and sanitation management of the entire city, Dubai’s tourism industry has reopened-with access to hotels, restaurants, theme parks, beaches and shopping malls.

Dubai was awarded the "Safe Travel" stamp by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). This recognizes the work done by the emirate to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Dubai has also launched the "Dubai Guaranteed" stamp to certify companies that have implemented all necessary hygiene procedures.

The city is widely regarded as a leading entrepreneurial center, and also has a large number of top co-working spaces, offering flexible packages, from one-hour meeting rooms to weekly, monthly or quarterly reservations.
