There are jobs in the United Arab Emirates that qualify for a blue visa, valid for a decade.

10-year Blue Visa in UAE:

The Blue visa is valid for ten years in the United Arab Emirates.

Explained: The key industries in which positions will become available, as well as the skills that residents will require.

Experts suggest that the recently announced 'Blue Residency' in the United Arab Emirates could potentially create hundreds of job opportunities for environmentally conscious individuals. With the long-term visa, climate advocates will be able to strike a balance between their enthusiasm for the environment and their secure employment.

Is it possible to obtain a Blue Visa in the United Arab Emirates?

According to Dr. Amna bint Abdullah Al Dahak, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, the visa will entice individuals from all over the world who are experts in the field of sustainability and climate champions.

Which jobs in the UAE qualify for a 10-year blue visa?

Experts anticipate that the visa will create employment opportunities for individuals who have received education or training in the field of sustainability. Environmental scientists and researchers are among those that fall into this category, as stated by Libbie Burtinshaw, who is the head of operations at PRO Partner Group, a company that provides assistance and services for business formation. "The new visa will, of course, attract new talent to the region, but it is also expected to offer an additional element of security to existing residents, who may determine that they are eligible for the visa."

Another expert predicted that the visa would lead to the creation of jobs across various industries. According to Azeem Zainulbhai, co-founder and chief product officer of the talent-on-demand platform Increased employment opportunities focused on environmental sustainability will be possible with oversized long-term residences.

The Environmental, Conservation, and Governance (ECG) sector encompasses roles dedicated to formulating policies and practices that promote environmental governance and regulatory standards.

In the context of sustainable development, professionals will be the driving force behind initiatives to integrate sustainability into a variety of industries, thereby striking a balance between economic growth and environmental preservation for future generations.

Marine life conservation refers to positions that involve the preservation and restoration of marine ecosystems. These positions may include research, monitoring, and active conservation programs or activities.

Employment opportunities in this sector will support international climate targets, such as the reduction of carbon emissions and the promotion of renewable energy sources, in the context of climate action.

According to Zainulbhai, "These roles will play a pivotal role in positioning the United Arab Emirates as a frontrunner in sustainability and environmental conservation."

In the past, the United Arab Emirates Cabinet had requested that those who advocate for sustainability and experts submit their applications for the Blue Residency through the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security. Having said that, it is not immediately apparent whether or not the applications are currently open.

The government has stated that individuals who have made significant contributions to environmental protection are eligible to apply for the 10-year visa. Marine life, land-based ecosystems, air quality, sustainable technology, and circular economies are some examples. Members of international organizations, associations, and non-governmental organizations, as well as recipients of worldwide awards, outstanding activists, and scholars, will be eligible to receive this honor.

Candidates for the Blue Visa, according to Zainulbhai, are required to have a comprehensive understanding of a wide range of specialized subjects. Essential competence encompasses these areas in addition to environmental sciences, sustainable development practices, marine biology, and policy-making in relation to climate action and conservation.

The specialist believes that the visa will considerably improve the options available to freelancers and consultants in the United Arab Emirates. "The Blue Visa significantly enriches prospects for freelancers and consultants who specialize in the environmental and sustainability sectors," the expert said. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) offers these professionals a solid and attractive platform to work within the country by providing opportunities for longer residency. This fosters both personal growth and professional development within the individual.
