It can be said that all countries have seen the value brought by the game industry and have increased their investment in the game industry~ Speaking of which, we have to mention the importance that other countries attach to game-related industries and a series of support policies!

Countries have discovered "this delicious cake" for a long time! Back in 2022, the EU has invested $18 million in financing specifically for the gaming industry, and more than $40 million for requests related to the gaming industry! It has also set up two special programs, "Creative Europe" and "Media Investment Fund", to provide funding for the gaming industry.

The government of Germany, a member of the European Union, has approved a federal budget of 50 million euros a year to revive the country's gaming industry.

As for the UK, as early as 2014, a series of game tax relief policies were introduced, attracting many game companies to develop in the UK, and in 2023, affected by the epidemic, the game industry is not optimistic, and the government will once again implement tax relief for the game industry. With a wave of his hand, £8 million was sent to the UK Games Fund to give strong support to eligible companies!

The federal government of Canada has also launched funding programs and tax breaks for released games to help them better promote in physical and digital markets. Another government support program, CanExport SME, is offering up to $50,000 to help gaming companies market in overseas markets.

The Australian government is attracting more domestic and foreign industry personnel by taking advantage of the "Digital Game Tax Credit" (DGTO), a policy that uses tax credits, to provide eligible developers with a 30% tax deduction (with an average annual tax reduction capped at $20 million per company)!Although various countries have come out of various ways to support the game industry! But the most striking thing is the Middle East! If you want to go, you will ask, how to apply? I have predicted your prediction~ The application conditions are placed below!

So how do you apply?

Applications can be made through the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority website or https://dubaigaming.gov.ae/ and include all required documents, including academic qualifications, proof of community contribution and job role, as well as copies of passports, e-IDs and resumes, and contact details. Applicants must also provide details of their place of residence, occupation, and workplace.

But, wait, don't rush to apply for a visa first, there is a digression that I still have to talk about. Listen to my friends in Dubai: the prices there are a bit high! A bowl of rice is worth 8 yuan! A bowl of dandan noodles costs 70 yuan~ There is also a hearsay rumor! Now the dens in northern Myanmar have been transferred to Dubai, I don't know if the parts will be dismantled when I go to Dubai to work, in short, even if you want to go, or plan to go, you must do a good job in advance to see the authenticity, don't be ........
