Travellers assemble! If you are hoping to move to or work in Dubai then we have great news for you, as authorities in the United Arab Emirates have reduced the processing time and the number of documents required for residency visas and work documents.

Previously, it took 30 days to bring a new employee on board but according to the new instructions, it will now take five days to do so with only five documents required instead of 16.

Vice President and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid announced the plan as part of a new efficiency drive, “Zero Bureaucracy”, on Wednesday, The National reported.
