  • August 10th, 2022

In Dubai, Golden Visa Holders may now obtain the Esaad privilege card, which provides a slew of unique benefits. Those who have lived in Dubai for five or ten years will receive a discount card for free.

Since the introduction of the Golden Visa in Dubai, more than 65,000 people have been able to access it. The card would be shared with Golden Visa holders through text message (SMS), according to Mona Mohammed Al Amri, head of the Esaad Card Committee at Dubai Police.

Public investment funds, real estate investors, entrepreneurs, professionals with specialized skills, scientists, physicians, experts, inventors, and creative individuals in culture and art will be eligible for the card.

Executive directors, specialized academics, professional athletes, Ph.D. degree holders specializing in engineering or science, humanitarian relief workers, and excellent university and high-school graduates will also be among them.

The Dubai Police Department introduced the Esaad card as a loyalty program in 2018.

It offers several perks and discounts in several industries, including healthcare, education, hospitality, entertainment, real estate, and restaurants, to name a few. A cardholder can receive discounts in 92 countries and 7,237 brands worldwide.

“This effort complements the leadership’s aim of becoming Dubai the world’s greatest city to live in,” said Abdulla Mohammed Al Basti, secretary-general of The Executive Council of Dubai.

Additionally, it complies with their guidelines to provide Golden residence holders with several benefits in addition to the stability provided by long-term visas.

Due to the stability and benefits, Golden Visa holders will continue to contribute to Dubai’s economy. They will also assist the city in attracting new and extraordinary talent globally. The commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police, Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, stated that long-term Golden Visas for chosen categories of residents provide them and their families with the stability to flourish in an “empowering atmosphere.”

Dubai’s Director-General of Economy and Tourism, Helal Saeed Almarri, says Golden Visa holders will also receive discounts on services, products, attractions, and experiences in addition to Dubai’s advanced infrastructure and state-of-the-art services.
