In Dubai, the real estate property is accessible to anyone UAE nationals, resident expat in Dubai, or foreign-based “overseas”; it is thus possible to purchase a property in designated areas in Dubai as a free hold by its height Sheikh Mohammed Al Macktoum, Ruler Dubai, and interested buyers should not have residence in the emirate for purchase; purchaser is entitled to full ownership.
Moreover, the possession of a property does not entitle the resident visa, as was in the past.
An example of freehold properties in Dubai Land Dubai, Emirates Living, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, The Greens and so on.
There are also areee city where only specific properties / buildings are designated as free hold.
