The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the most attractive countries in the world especially in terms of career growth, business prospects and investment opportunities, tax-free earnings, as well as political and economic stability. This is the reason why tens of thousands flock here on a yearly basis to obtain a UAE Residency.  Through unending foreign investment and businesses being set up in the private and public sectors of the economy, the UAE has transformed into a cosmopolitan country having very high standards of living. The UAE’s popularity is only increasing as a result of various incentives and initiatives afforded by the government. Those who are engaged in international business often face an important question about how to obtain a tax residency in the country, which provides advantageous conditions regarding taxation of physical persons – its residents. From this point of view, the UAE is one best possible option among the other jurisdictions. All the UAE residents are fully exempted from all kinds of income taxes; the UAE Business Residence Visa gives its holders almost the same rights and possibilities as the citizens of this country.

Business Setup in UAE and subsequently obtaining the UAE residence visa for a business owner and all members of his/her family is processed hassle-free. The business owner can expect to benefit from a quick and easy incorporation process, ongoing business support, and financial incentives such as tax exemptions and zero currency restrictions. Also, there is total freedom to repatriate capital and profit back to your country of origin. The business license is typically obtained in just a matter of days. Obtaining UAE Residency Visa follows shortly after the license is produced. The process of applying for your UAE Residency Visa, as well as those of your employees, is very straightforward. UAE Residence visas can be renewed an unlimited number of times if you live according to the laws of this country and continue to own your own business.
