Opening a Branch Office in UAE – Requirements, Setup & License Cost

Opening a new branch of business is one of the things that businessmen conduct here in the UAE. More often than not, business owners carry out a business setup in Dubai and expand into the free zones to do business in there.

Opening a branch company in Dubai simply means that a person already has a licensed organization in the UAE (outside the free zones) and would like to cater to other and potential clients inside those zones. Almost the same procedure of choosing an office, warehouse, and location is applied when you set up a branch of a local company. In addition to this, you would need a national service agent when you set up a branch. This agent must be either an individual who is a UAE national or a company that is owned by UAE nationals. It should be noted, however, that this agent will not have any rights on the branch that is set up. This is only done because the federal and local government requires this so.
