Mayurbhanj Artist Mona Biswarupa Mohanty Receives UAE’s Coveted “Golden Visa”, CM Congratulates

Bhubaneswar: Mona Biswarupa Mohanty has become the first Odia artist to receive the UAE’s coveted ”golden visa” or long-term residence visa for 10 years.

The long-term cultural visa is granted to talented people in the fields of arts, creative industries, literature and culture, heritage history and cognitive studies. It enables foreigners to live, work and study in the West Asian country without the need of a national sponsor and with 100 per cent ownership of their business on the UAE’s mainland.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has congratulated Mona Biswarupa Mohanty, who is from Mayurbhanj district, for receiving the UAE’s coveted Golden Visa.
Her remarkable achievement will inspire others to excel in various fields globally, the Chief Minister said.

Mohanty has been living in Dubai since 2007, worked in the academic field and in the design industry for about eight years. She is a self-employed art practitioner registered with the Dubai Economic Department.
She has a diploma in fine arts from the School of Art and Crafts, Baripada, apart from bachelors and masters degrees.
In 2019, the UAE implemented the new system, in which these visas are issued for five or 10 years and renewed automatically.
