The Indian-born founder, chairman, and managing director of the UAE's Aster DM Healthcare, Dr Azad Moopen, has been awarded awarded a 10-year UAE visa, and joins fellow Indian businessman Rizwan Sajan, founder of Danube Group, who was awarded the residency visa last week by Dubai’s General Directorate Residency and Foreigners Affairs.

The visa award, which included Dr Moopen's wife, Naseera Azad, followed the UAE Cabinet’s May 2018 announcement, led by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, to grant long-term residency visas to businesspeople, investors, and professionals.

In a press statement cited by Construction Week's sister title Arabian Business, Dr Moopen said: “We thank HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and the UAE Government for their visionary initiative, and assure that we’ll be living up to their expectations.”

He added that it was a privilege to receive the long-term visa, and an acknowledgement of the company’s efforts in the country’s business front.

“This gesture reinforces our commitment to the country with more projects under Aster and Medcare.”

The 10-year visas are part of a growth package that also includes 100% foreign ownership of companies in some sectors, and the Gold Card permanent residency programme announced in the UAE just weeks ago.
