Basic Requirements

  • For business setup in Dubai, it is essential that you apply for and attain an operating trade license.
  • No matter how small it is, you need to have a functional office located inside the trade zone. If you are short on cash, you can consider renting in an eligible building, which could provide certain amenities to you. You have a wide array of options, ranging from small office and desk spaces to even warehouses.
