Jasmin Fichte, founder and managing partner of Fichte & Co, was granted a 10-year golden visa by Dubai authorities on Sunday, becoming the first female lawyer in the UAE to receive the visa.
Fichte is a German national and has been a UAE resident for more than 20 years.
The UAE government had chosen 6,800 investors and professionals based in the UAE, who hold around Dh100 billion in assets and hail from 70 countries, to receive the golden visa.
Among professionals, the UAE also granted permanent residency to 2,500 scientists, researchers and doctors who come from various backgrounds including gas and energy, nanotechnology, aviation, engineering and robotics.
Dubai has granted 10-year visa to around 212 doctors for their work to protect the residents against the coronavirus pandemic.
