PROCEDURE AND TYPE OF VISA REQUIRED FOR BUSINESS SETUP IN UAE
Are you planning to set up business in UAE? Thinking what to do to start a small business in the UAE? Then you must first learn the procedure and the type of visa required for business setup in UAE. Before setting up a company in Dubai/UAE, you need to make a decision; whether to set up business on the mainland or in a free zone based on various aspects such as nature of ownership, nature of trade, extent of liability, partners or agents involvement, and economic benefits that can be reaped.
Business set up on the mainland
Setting up a business on the mainland has several benefits such as flexibility to do business anywhere in the UAE, availability of more business activities for licensing, no limit on the number of visas, and no business or personal taxes. In order to set up the business, first, you need to contact the Department of Economic Development (DED) of the respective emirate to get the initial approval and then register your trade name.
