After football star Cristiano Ronaldo received his 10-year UAE Gold Card visa last week, it was the turn of multiple tennis Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic to receive the honour. 

The list of those being given the long term Gold Card visa also includes prominent athletes like Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos, Paul Pogba, Romalu Lukaku and Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

The decision to grant the Gold Card visa to top athletes from around the world was made earlier this month at a UAE cabinet meeting headed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
