Cryptocurrencies are a fairly new topic in the business world, but they have created a huge demand for IT workers. Blockchain specialists and specialists in the bitcoin mining UAE sphere have become in demand in the UAE due to the popularity of the bitcoin protocol, and the technology has been followed by new needs in areas such as e-commerce and gambling. The demand comes from people who know about blockchain technology, which is widely used to send data quickly, cheaply, and securely. That’s why it’s so popular in banking, and giants like Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft are already working on their own solutions.
What do employers expect? I am well-versed in.NET programming, Java, PHP, and the ability to create Node.js and Web3.js applications, and I understand the concept that underpins cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum.
Blockchain is a new technology, and there are not many specialists in creating such solutions. However, at the same time, these are not very complicated things, which can be learned relatively quickly with, of course, appropriate previous experience as a programmer and the support of experienced engineers specializing in blockchain. We will explain how to obtain various types of visas in the UAE, including work visas.
Visas to the UAE: basic nuances
The United Arab Emirates is one of the favorite destinations for emigration because of the many fiscal and economic advantages the country offers to those who want to start a business.
Short-term visas allow one to enter and stay in the UAE for a short period of time, mainly for tourist and business purposes. People who want to invest and work in the country need a long-term resident visa to set up their business interests and live legally in the UAE.

Procedure when there is no European citizenship
If you do not reside in the European Union, you must apply at a United Arab Emirates embassy or consulate in your country of origin or country of residence to see if you need a visa to enter Dubai, and, if so, where to apply for one. When making a stopover in Dubai, a non-EU citizen should check with the relevant embassy/consulate of the United Arab Emirates to see if a visa is required. You often have to arrange this in person at the embassy or consulate.
For more information on visa conditions, it is best to contact the United Arab Emirates Embassy in The Hague.
Work visa to the UAE
Do you want to stay in Dubai for a longer period of time to work? Then a visa is required, which only your employer or sponsor from the United Arab Emirates can obtain.
There are a number of guidelines attached to your work visa application:
- Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months at the time of your visa application.
- All photos must be recent color photographs (Polaroid photos are not accepted).
- Persons in the UAE cannot apply for another entry visa until they have left the UAE.
Visitor Visa to the UAE
In addition to tourist and work visas, there is another visa option: a visitor visa, which is valid for 60 days from the date of issue and covers a maximum stay of 90 days. With a visitor’s visa, you must have a sponsor who is a resident of the United Arab Emirates or a company. This visa cannot be extended, you must leave the country after 90 days.
