Elimination of Down Payment of Golden Visa on Property


The UAE has announced the elimination of the down payment of the Golden Visa on property to make it easier for investors to get the 10-year visa. 


Early on, it was compulsory to pay a down payment of 1 million dirhams which is equivalent to $272,294. This condition applies to investors who wish to acquire Golden Visa by buying property valued at 2 million dirhams or more.


In other words, if you wish to invest in a real estate mortgage or instrumental plan you have to pay at least 1 million dirhams as a down payment. 


Luckily, the United Arab Emirates tends to make the process easier than before by dropping the minimum down payment condition


According to The National News, “Now, investors can qualify for the golden visa if the property's value is Dh2 million or more, regardless of whether it's off-plan, completed, mortgaged or not mortgaged”.

Perks of The Golden Visa for Property Owners


There are ample perks of the Golden Visa for property owners and potential buyers too. 


Property buyers and property enthusiasts will enjoy the following perks:


  1. Property owners who paid down payments of less than Dh1 million can now be eligible for the Golden Visa
  2. Potential property buyers can invest in off-plan units paying from (30 to 50 thousand) down payments and apply for the Golden Visa
  3. Investors will amplify their investment over time by taking place in the UAE real estate dynamic market
