You have successfully established a new business in one of the UAE’s free zones. You have set the processes in motion and are looking to grow your business with a new team. Whether you are hiring within the UAE (a talent working at Dubai’s onshore location) or want to hire a foreign workforce, the Dubai Free Zone visa applications are relatively straightforward. 

However, with a pool of information available today, it can be overwhelming to understand the visa process, including the eligibility, legalities and expenses.

This detailed blog will help you make an informed decision about the associated procedures, types of visa and eligibility requirements for each type of visa.

With the ongoing pandemic, many businesses in Dubai and those looking to enter the Middle Eastern market have increasing concerns about any updated regulations that impact their workforce. Most businesses based onshore and in the majority of the free zones (excluding the DIFC and ADGM) will only need to comply with Federal Law No. 8 of 1980 (the UAE Labour Law). It is, however, important to note that businesses operating in any free zones may, in addition, need to comply with any additional regulations set by their free zone.
