1. How Many Visas will I get if I open a Company in the UAE?


Number of Visas depends upon the size of the office and the type of business.

If you have a local company registered in the UAE say in Dubai then you must first get work permits for your staff from the office of the Ministry of Labour. They have their own norms depending on the office size and business category. A office of of about 1000 sq.ft. engaged in Trading business can get up to 10-15 visas. Owners are always entitled to a visa.

For the Free Zone companies the norms are well defined. If you have taken a standard package plus trade licence then you may get 1 or 2 or 4-5 visas based upon the size of the office. For each office package number of visas allowed is prescribed. You will know that in advance.

For large business who set up factories and warehouses in Free Zones the number of visas is much higher and can be confirmed in advance by submitting a business plan.
