The emirate of Dubai has now unveiled a new annual programme for overseas professionals working remotely due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It will enable people to work remotely from Dubai while continuing their employment.
Over 60% of the adult population in the UK are still working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the pressure of working longer hours, the increased loneliness and the increased feeling of living in offices is starting to take its toll on the mental health of the nation.
With the remote working order still in place in the UK and local lockdown restrictions being implemented across the country, working from Dubai has never been more appealing. Dubai is a city of creativity and inspiration, where remote workers are guaranteed to find the right work life balance to help them through the pandemic.
From year-round sunshine to miles of pristine beaches and unparalleled dining and accommodation options, there will be plenty of reasons to leave your laptop once logged off for the day.
To qualify for the programme, applicants need to have a passport with six months validity, health insurance with UAE coverage validity, proof of employment, a minimum of USD 5,000 salary per month.
