Freelance visa in the UAE

Фриланс виза в ОАЭ

In November 2020, the Department of Economic Development announced that non-residents can apply for a freelance license.

First of all, you need to get a license to work as a freelancer.

Choosing the appropriate zone

The choice of the zone will directly depend on the type of activity/industry/sectors.

The cost can vary significantly, so it is important to study the issue well before choosing a free zone that meets your individual needs.

Free zones that currently offer freelance permission include:

• Dubai Media City
• Dubai Studio City
• Dubai Production City
• Dubai Knowledge Park
• Dubai Design District
• Abu Dhabi’s twofour54
• Fujairah Creative City
• Ras Al Khaimah Economic Free Zone
• Ajman Free zone
• Umm Al Quwain Free Trade Zone

We submit an application with the necessary package of documents

The review takes 10-15 days. After approval, it is necessary to visit the business center, sign all documents and pay a one-time fee, depending on the selected zone and the requirements for your business of 7,500 to 20,000 ADE.

The permit must be renewed annually.

As soon as you get a freelance permit, you immediately need to apply for an “establishment card”, which is issued for 2000 rubles.

After you receive your “establishment card”, you will be able to apply for a UAE resident visa for a freelancer at the Dubai Development Authority (“DDA”).

To receive it, you must undergo a medical examination and be in the UAE at the time of submitting documents.

It is done within 7/10 days.

If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them. Also, in order to avoid refusals, we will be able to help with visa processing.
