Why should I setup a company in Fujairah?
Location and business environment
Since the establishment of a Free Trade Zone more than a decade ago, commercial activity in the Emirate has flourished. Due to its strategic position with the UAE’s only access to the Indian Ocean, Fujairah has a bustling, important multipurpose port. In fact, Fujairah ranks as one of the top three bunkering locations in the world.
The Fujairah Free Trade Zone (also called Creative City) created an environment for individuals and businesses working in the media, consulting, communication, and design fields. Creative City has a mission to permit, nurture and breed creative geniuses. Its mission is to create an environment conducive to the growth of the artist hidden within. Companies registered with Fujairah Creative City Free Zone, part of Fujairah Media; are permitted to carry out business activities with companies within the Free Zone or with companies within other Free Zones in the UAE or with companies outside the UAE. Should the company wish to conduct business with Government entities or local companies within the UAE they should either establish a local branch office or transact through a local commercial agent.
Filing requirements and compliance
Under your license issued from Fujairah Creative City Free Zone and visa issued from Fujairah Immigration, you will not be able to permanently work from any 3rd party offices or locations. However if your company is engaged in a specific project/contract with a client that requires your regular presence at the clients’ premises e.g. an audit – you will be able to visit and work from your clients’ premises until the project/contract is complete. Please note that in this scenario when you visit your clients’ premises you will need to sign the visitors book, wear a visitor’s badge, and work from a communal area.
