Top Malayalam film actors Mammotty and Mohanlal have been chosen for Golden Visas to the UAE.
The Golden Visa, a long-term residence visa introduced by the UAE government in 2019, allows recipients to live and work in the UAE for ten years without the need for a national sponsor, and it will be automatically renewed.
This is the first time the UAE government has bestowed the prestigious award on actors from the Malayalam film industry.
This visa was previously granted to Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt.
Mammootty and Mohanlal are both expected to receive special visas in the coming days.
The golden visa is awarded to investors, doctors, engineers, and artists who have made significant contributions to their respective fields.
