Sana Javed and husband Umair Jaswal are the latest Pakistani celebs to be honoured with a Golden Visa by the UAE government, weeks after actor Humayun Saeed was handed one.
Sana took to Instagram on Friday to share the news with a snippet from a Khaleej Times article announcing the same. “Thank you, UAE!” she captioned the post.
Talking to City Times, the Khaani star shared her excitement about being honoured by UAE, saying, “We are very thrilled and honoured to get this Golden Visa. We are very grateful to the UAE.”
Her husband, singer-songwriter Umair, also described the honour as “an amazing feeling.”
“UAE has always been a second home to us, and we meet so many of our loved ones here, so being honoured with this visa is absolutely fantastic,” he said.
With a golden visa, foreigners can live, work and study in the UAE without the need of a national sponsor and with 100 per cent ownership of their business on the UAE’s mainland.
Other stars who have received the prestigious golden visa include Cristiano Ronaldo, Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty etc.
