Tax, pay & finances The UAE does not impose social security taxes on foreign nationals. UAE-national employees and nationals from the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries contribute to retirement and pension funds in accordance with specific regulations. All foreign nationals wishing to visit the UAE on business must have a valid visa status to enter the UAE, with the exception of nationals of GCC countries (excluding Qataris). Foreign nationals may enter the UAE for business purposes under a company sponsored visit visa or free visa on arrival. In addition, transit visas of up to 96 hours are possible. Prior to entering the UAE we would advise for you to check online if you do not need to apply for a visa in advance. Depending on which passport you hold you may receive a free visa on arrival enabling them to stay in the UAE for an allowable period. The only documentation required for such individuals is their passport, which must have validity of six months.
