Expats require a residence visa to live in Dubai. While a residence visa is not the same as a work permit, it is usually sponsored by the company employing the expat. The residence visa is needed to open a bank account in the UAE, get a driving license and to register a car.

There are several types of residence visas for the UAE, all with different periods of validity:

EMPLOYMENT VISA (private and public sectors) - valid for 2 years.
