Getting a licence for your company is an important step in launching your business in Dubai. If you are in a hurry to get started, you can apply for a licence on an urgent or fast-track basis, then complete the licensing process later.
The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry supports members with a range of services such as economic research facilities, business expansion services, and networking events. You’ll find training institutes that can help improve your employees’ skills, while also providing smart management solutions.
If your company has a large number of employees, it helps to hire a transportation provider to bring your employees to and from work. Another option is to look into providing cars for your staff — these cars are often leased on a long-term basis.
Although it isn’t mandatory, many Dubai-based businesses offer employees private health insurance instead of government health cards.
If trade is a large part of your business, you may need a logistics provider. Since Dubai has long been an important port city, there are several logistics companies to choose from. Airfreight and express shipping are often provided by one of the major airfreight carriers like Aramex, Empost, DHL, UPS or FedEx.
