Purchasing real estate alone does not entitle you as the real estate owner to permanently reside in the United Arab Emirates. Instead, you must apply for the issuance of a residence visa separately. The decisive factors as to whether your status as property owner allows you to apply for a residence visa and which options are available to you, are, amongst others, the value of the property and the existence of a mortgage. In any case, a property must have been handed over and the title deed issued before a residence visa application can be initiated.
