Expatriates benefit country in many ways

Posted on Updated on

The headline Expats using business loophole to stay in UAE after retirement (July 31) may convey a negative impression about the expatriate community, but this phenomenon is beneficial for the country.

Many expatriates who have been in this country for a long time consider it to be their home with their families and children wanting to settle here. They are ready to invest their lifetime of savings in this country. They feel that the UAE is a safe country to live.

This is the case in most developed countries that encourage expatriates to invest in return for residence visas.
