Virtual Company License


UAE remains to be a pioneer in innovation - with the introduction of Virtual Company License being the latest.

The Virtual Company License is the first type of business license to be granted without a residence visa in Dubai. Virtual companies can operate in specific professional activity zones such as printing and advertising, computer programming, consultancy-related services, and design activities.

Although a virtual license does not automatically guarantee a bank account in the UAE, leaving this to the discretion of banks, it can facilitate access to account opening processes.
