Multi-awarded Filipino educator in Dubai latest Golden Visa holder


A Dubai-based educator believes that acquiring the most coveted Golden Visa by the UAE government does not only benefit himself but also the growing Filipino community in the UAE as this elevates the Filipino identity. 

Dr. Rex Bacarra, a Philosophy and HR professor at the prestigious Curtin University, qualified for the ‘People with Specialized Talents’. 

He told The Global Filipino Magazine that it was yet another milestone. 

“I was overjoyed and excited because I know this is not just for me, but also for the Filipino community,” Dr. Rex, who also plays the role of professional development head and online learning administrator in the same university, said. 

“Personally, to be recognized by the government as a person of high value who contributed and continues to contribute to the progressive landscape of the UAE is something to be proud of. The government here continues to recognize the individuals and groups who are making a difference through different initiatives and foremost is the granting of this visa,” he added. 

The esteemed educator is also a recipient of the OFW Bayani Award, the highest award accorded by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) through the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai. 

For him, UAE’s initiative to grant talented expatriates motivates the public to more as the efforts are appreciated. 

“This is why I am extending my sincerest gratitude to the government. Imagine not renewing the visa for 10 years, no sponsor, being able to sponsor family members and dependents, etc,” he added. 

The multi-awarded Filipino wishes that more Filipinos be granted the long-term visa as it validates that Filipinos have incredible talents possessing leadership skills; that Filipinos are creative and innovative in an excellent manner 

“This gives precedence and motivation for organizations and companies to look at Filipinos, despite our political situation, in an inspiring manner,” he further added.
