UAE Free Zone Company Formation

UAE free zone is a separate area designed for trading, professional or industrial companies. There exist over 20 Free Economic Zones in Dubai and the neighboring Emirates.

Factors to consider while choosing a UAE Free Zone


Some Free Zones are located close to ports and airports, or may even be a part of the port; others have good road access to the main emirates.

Licensing process

In some Free Zones you can get the license within a few days, in others – 30-40 days. Sometimes Free Zones have capital requirements, sometimes – not.


Some Free Zones offer excellent infrastructure and other facilities for investors. For example, you can live and work in the same Free Zone.

Free Zone prestige

Free Zones located within Dubai are more prestigious, but at the same time more expensive too. However, some remote Free Zones are quite popular as well.
