Dubai Mainland License
As of 2021, a local national is no longer needed to get most Dubai mainland licenses. Instead, foreign investors can now start most mainland businesses with full ownership. There are more than 1,000 business activities included in the list of full foreign ownership. Companies considered to have strategic impact to the UAE are required to appoint a local nominee shareholder, holding 51 per cent of the company shares but its possible to get a waiver of rights and revenue.
The process to get a business license from the DED is straightforward if you understand how the agency works. However, if you are an investor from overseas or don’t wish to get bogged down in the process, we can help you accomplish your goals. We handle all the formalities and take care of the paperwork to focus on growing your business.
