In accordance with the UAE government’s recent announcement to grant leading entrepreneurs, investors and business professionals with the long-term visa, Alisha Moopen, newly elected Deputy Managing Director of the Aster DM Healthcare Group, has now been awarded the 10-year long term Gold Card visa.

Speaking on the occasion, Alisha said, “I am truly honoured that the UAE government has recognised me as one of the first women business leaders worthy of receiving this status independently. Receiving this residency status has not only encouraged me to work towards newer and better healthcare innovations through our work at Aster but also motivates me further that the government of UAE has recognised me as an agent of change in the healthcare sector. We sincerely thank the Government of the UAE for this visionary initiative and remain committed to the progress of the country.”
