Company Formation

The company incorporation procedure in Dubai resembles the procedures in most European countries provided that the foreign investors have acquired all the information about the business activity they will undertake and know all the business licensing requirements.

In most cases, the Dubai Company Act requires a foreign investor to have a local partner who will own the majority interest. The only places investors may incorporate fully foreign owned companies are the Dubai free zones. The company registration requirements will be different from case to case because of the type of company one chooses to open in Dubai.
