Sharjah Media City - SHAMS Free Zone

SHAMS Free Zone Business Setup

Sharjah Media City (SHAMS) is modeled after Dubai Media City and Fujairah Creative City. It was conceived to attract media companies and entrepreneurs from across the region to Sharjah.


SHAMS free zone offers a variety of flexible office solutions, including flexi-desks studios and showrooms. The free zone provides cost-effective solutions for businesses of all stages, from start-ups to large multi-national companies.


Being a relatively new free zone in the UAE, Shams provides high-quality services and quick turnaround for all administrative services. It does not have to contend with the red tape and paperwork that legacy-free zones created before the digital era must deal with.


SHAMS has also rolled out concierge services for all their clients to avoid any form of inconvenience. Their experienced team handles your applications, books your appointments, and collects documents on your behalf. This extends to services such as driver’s license, car registration, dependent visas, and more.
