More About This Pioneering Move

This is expected to positively impact the Abu Dhabi property market in tandem with other measures such as 100% foreign ownership of land in the Emirate with long-term visa sanctions. In H1 2019, real estate in Abu Dhabi witnessed 10,000 transactions which are worth around Dh31 billion as per reports.
