DUBAI Aug 24: Malayalam superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal have received UAE’s golden visa. Both the actors took to their social media handles on Monday evening to share photos of themselves along with the visa.
This is the first time that the UAE government is bestowing the coveted recognition to actors from the Malayalam film industry. Earlier, Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt were given this visa.
Golden Visa, a long-term residence visa introduced by the UAE government in 2019, allows the actors to live and work in the Emirates without the need of a national sponsor for 10 years, which will be renewed automatically.
Sharing a photo on Facebook, Mammootty wrote, “My sincere gratitude to H E Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa Al Hammadi for my UAE Golden Visa ! Many thanks to my brother Yusuff Ali M.A for helping make this happen,” while Mohanlal also shared a photo post expressing his gratitude.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, had introduced a 10-year golden visa late last year in order to keep “talented people and great minds” in the Gulf country and to help in its development.
