We asked people about the visa & residency requirements in UAE, they wrote...

"Not if not all are on work visas but you can get a residency with property purchase. Also, you may register in the free zones as well. Looking at 5-20k for the right to live there," said another expat in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

"In order to get a residency visa, you need to be sponsored, either by an individual, or most commonly, by your employer. The employer will apply for the residency visa on your behalf. You will have to have a medical examination and police clearance etc..," wrote a member who made the move to Dubai, UAE.
