Foreign Branch Setup/ Representative Office in Dubai

To establish a branch or a representative office in Dubai, a foreign company needs to go through a very detailed process which involves a lot of visits and approvals from the government. However, to briefly sum it up, the following steps would give you an overview of what you could expect during the incorporation procedure;

  • Identify and appoint a local service agent with the help of your consultant or consulting firm.

  • Next is to get initial approval from the Dubai Economic Department (DED)

  • Then follow registration procedures which involve many other steps with the Ministry of Economy

  • Select your office or office location.

  • Submit the entire document with the approvals from the respective authorities back to DED to receive the license.

Although this process may seem lengthy and tiring but appointing an expert to handle the incorporation often saves time, money and unnecessary hassle.
