Hi, I have a friend who is a US Citizen. How long can one stay in Dubai? Can they live there permanently? Is there a certain visa that allows one to live there permanently? Thanks for your help.

I think he can stay for about 6 months without any visa. and if he wishes to live here. he s gotta be sponsored by his employer, or by spouse (if the spouse is a uae national only). he can live as long as he wants as long as he is sponsored. but he cud never live here permanently. if he commits a crime or his employer cancels his visa , he has to go bk to his country.

You can live in the UAE as long as you are working and are sponsored through your employer.
Another opportunity is to purchase property and receive a residence visa every 3 years or be an investor.
