Why Retire in the United Arab Emirates?
In our lifetime, we work, earn, invest, save money so that we could retire properly. Retirement does not mean that we stop living our lives to the fullest. Retirement actually means the opposite because you finally have the time, money, and energy to enjoy yourself and actually live life. Consider the United Arab Emirates as the best option for your retirement. Here are the reasons:
The UAE is one of the safest places in the world!
It is one of the securest places in the world. It is a country that has implemented laws to protect its residents, as well as tourists. Its strict laws against drug trafficking and its legal system take into account both victim’s and perpetrators’ rights. The country also offers its citizens many programs for education, healthcare, and employment opportunities. Crime rates are low here because people here don’t have to fear kidnappings or terrorism like they do in other parts of the world, where these crimes are more rampant. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Forbes named the United Arab Emirates one of the safest countries to visit. The UAE residents agree that there was no shortage of food, medication, or basic household items during the pandemic.
World-class Health Care
The United Arab Emirates also has a high-quality healthcare system. It’s considered to be one of the best in the world. The country treats patients with respect and dignity, as well as offers a wide range of services that are both affordable and of excellent quality. USAID has assisted in this regard by providing funding for hospitals, clinics, and other health-related institutions. The UAE has a vastly developed healthcare infrastructure that ranks among the top 10 most productive in the world. Currently, there are one hundred and four public hospitals. They also provide several programs that are intended to help ex-pats adjust to life in this country. These include getting some free medical tests as well as free prescriptions for medication. All UAE residents are afforded the same accommodations and treatment regardless of their nationality. The government of the UAE provides free COVID-19 vaccination to all its residents and citizens, prioritizing senior population. This health insurance policy is best for people 55 and up at a starting price of 6,000 AED.
The Cost of Living Makes it Worth the Move
