Dubai population to surge to nearly 6m in 20 years amid urban transformation – The National

The population of Dubai is projected to nearly double in the next 20 years, according to experts who predict a fresh wave of post-pandemic immigration.

Experts anticipate the growth will drive the need for new schools and hundreds of thousands of new homes, with some new arrivals expected to be from Russia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Dubai Statistics Centre’s population counter, which records growth using residency visa data, stood at 3.48m this week – and looks set to hit 3.5 million within weeks or months.
