About UAE Freelance Visa

Take advantage of Freelance Visa to enjoy your life in UAE

A Freelance Visa or a Freelance Permit is a type of residence permit which allows the holder to work as a freelance professional in any UAE Free Zone Authority. The visa is valid for a period of two years.

As a sole practitioner, you are able to operate under your birth name rather than a business name. As a freelancer, you will need to select a jurisdiction (one of the Free Zones or the Mainland), select a field of activity, and obtain the required documentation and license.

A Freelancer License in Dubai is valid for one year and must be renewed thereafter.
