More than 2,000 outstanding high-school students and their families are eligible for the UAE Golden Visa.

That's according to the Emirates Schools Establishment, which said the long-term visa will be given to as many as 2,036 graduates of public and private schools that follow the UAE Ministry of Education curriculum.

These are students who have scored at least 95 per cent in Grade 12.

Dubai residents can apply through the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs' website.

Others can submit their applications through the website of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship.

Earlier this month, the UAE government announced it would grant golden visas to distinguished high school graduates and their families.
