Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays for Italian club Juventus, is the latest celebrity to have obtained the golden residency visa in the UAE.
Earlier this month, the UAE Cabinet announced that promising athletes in the UAE would be eligible for gold visas after it approved the new residency scheme on Sunday (February 2). But what few would have thought was that sportsmen like Cristiano Ronaldo, a legendary player and international icon for millions of fans around the globe, would be the latest beneficiary of the Gold Card.
The move comes within the framework of the implementation of the Cabinet’s decision to grant a package of long-term visas, and to confirm the position of the state as an incubator for creators, scientists and entrepreneurs.
The classic footballer has scored over 700 goals in more than 1,000 games, which is a remarkable record by itself.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai adopted last May the system of permanent residency, “the Gold Card,” for investors, entrepreneurs and those with specialised talent to stimulate business and create an investment environment that attracts and encourages the growth and success of business for investors.
Cristiano Ronaldo has a strong relationship with Dubai. Like some other sportsmen from Europe, including soccer players, he visits the emirate regularly to spend his annual vacation and enjoy warmth and security. He has participated in many events in Dubai in the past.

UCL: Chelsea Will Be Difficult To Overcome In Milan, Says Kaka
Real Madrid and AC Milan’s former midfielder, Kaka has hailed ‘very consistent’ Chelsea following their defeat of AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Brazilian, a former AC Milan player, admitted the Blues ‘deserved’ to beat the Italian side.
It was Chelsea’s first win in the Champions League under Potter, thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.
The Italians will likely need to beat Graham Potter’s men in the reverse fixture next week to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.
“Chelsea deserved that result, said Kaka.
“I think they have a very consistent game they controlled the game the whole time. They didn’t create many opportunities but they took advantage of the opportunities they had.
“Most of them [chances] conceded by Milan and we were talking about the absence of the players and it’s important to keep the players that couldn’t play tonight but for Milan, it was a poor game.
