The UAE became the first country in the Arab world to attain the status of the world’s No.1 passport when its residents gained visa free access to over 90 per cent of the globe.

By virtue of its population mix, the UAE and especially Dubai has been home for migration seekers most of whom are expatriates and besides their modern-day migration motivators, the policy landscape around immigration is an interesting phenomenon. “Dubai is a unique and sought after destination for people from all over the world to enjoy a superior quality of life.

However several expats consider the West as a permanent or retirement destination when the subject of repatriation comes up. "We deal with people from across all nationalities including those who hail from the region’s Arab countries and of course South Asians and others. Our aim is to provide them with recommendations based on their exact needs, circumstances, objectives or priorities.”

Thus spoke Vrinda Gupta, Managing Partner of Vazir Group — The Global Immigration Consultants who shed light on the local market where the number of migration seekers is gradually increasing over the course of the past years for top global destinations like Canada, Cyprus, Greece and Turkey.

“With the rapid change in technological trends in everyday life, people are now more equipped with information about all opportunities within access, which in turn prevents them from being misled by brokers or ‘third and fourth-tier consultants’.

“We have seen a rapid increase in interest for Canada as a world-class destination for whole family,” said Vrinda Gupta, Managing Partner, Vazir Group. “The Canada Entrepreneur’ programme is a Government of Canada initiative to facilitate migration seekers and encourage them to create more job opportunities rather than occupying one. Through this programme individuals as well as groups of up to 5 people can apply for a single startup idea,” she pointed.
