Immigration law and citizenship involves the nationality and legal status of individuals of the UAE and of foreign descent. The area is complex due to the globalized nature of the world, immigration laws and policies, and possibilities for dual nationality. In the 21st century, it is not uncommon for individuals and companies to operate across borders, either on a temporary basis, or on a more long-term basis.

The topic of citizenship is key. An individual’s place of birth or family connections can be crucial in determining whether immigration or citizenship is granted within the UAE. This is also true of elsewhere across the world. Incorrect documentation can cause delays to entry into the UAE, causing severe disruption to travel plans and business dealings. In some cases, this can lead to individuals being banned completely, wasting valuable time and financial resources.

Therefore, experienced, knowledgeable lawyers are needed to solve what are often complicated, sensitive issues in this area. Whether there is a problem with obtaining a travel or working visa, or an issue related to 2nd citizenship, we can help.
