Last week our team visited the wonderful city of Dubai for the annual International Property Show
The Premier Law team was in Dubai last week to promote the Spanish Golden Visa and our lovely Costa del Sol lifestyle, which from our findings is very well received abroad.
The first few days were spent in meeting with our local contacts in Dubai, as we are working on expanding our presence to the Emirates and can now proudly say we offer UAE residency. We found there to be quite a lot of interest surrounding the Spanish Golden Visa (even more than what we expected), and it seemed that there are many foreigners who see Spain as a great place to live and only need a reliable firm to ease the process and show them the way. After all, investing 500.000 euros into real estate in exchange for being able to reside and work in our wonderful country is a very attractive deal.
The main reason for our visit was to attend the International Property Show, which counted on the presence of world-class investors from all over the world and offered the chance to talk about many different aspects, from golden visas and highly qualified migration to sustainability and urban planning. It was very interesting observe such a multidisciplinary and international approach to real estate, especially when surrounded by the amazing people we found there.
We met people from all corners of the world: Mexico, the United States, Palestine, Serbia, Russia, Turkey, Egypt or Brazil, just to mention a few nationalities. Some of them directly related to the immigration business, others focused on capital investments, others dedicated to the exports of agricultural products… It was very rewarding to see how so many countries and diverse backgrounds could merge in one place and do business together. It was a pleasure to share lunch with everyone and get to know each other, and even spend the evenings at the Beach Clubs with some of them. We noticed how important it is in this sphere to be both professional and friendly and how important it is to combine these two worlds to create a long lasting, professional relationship based on trust. One without the other makes it much harder to be able to do business correctly, but when they are combined they can create bonds that form a solid and lasting alliance.
The last two days we had some spare time to enjoy the city and wander around (but not much, to be honest, since 45 degrees and 90% humidity did not make it easy to walk around). Contrary to what some of us thought, there was actually much to be done in that small flaming city in the Arabian Peninsula. The options are limitless: scuba diving, excursions to the desert on a Jeep, visits to the top of the Burj Khalifa, skydiving… Although nothing is comparable to the beauty of Spain, Dubai ended up being a fair competitor.
In conclusion, this week was eye-opening for the whole team and we can all agree that we love what we do and now have even more reason to attend future real estate events that take place anywhere around the globe. We will be happy if they are just as productive as the one in Dubai.
