Freelance Work  in UAE


Click here for Mobile View

Although freelancing in the UAE is legal, it is important to distinguish between part-time work and freelancing. The latter denotes working for yourself, which is fine as long as you are licensed to do so.

There are two ways of setting up a business in Dubai and different licence options for both. The first is through the Dubai Department of Economic Development and the second is through one of the 
many free zones. The 
big benefit of setting 
up business through a free zone is that companies (i.e. you as a freelancer) can remain 100 per cent foreign-owned and enjoy tax-free status for 50 years.

Stay-at-home mums can also freelance on their husbandís visa, so long as they obtain a no objection certificate (NOC) from their spouse, as well as a labour 
card issued from the licensing authority/immigration office of the emirate where the freelance company has been registered.

The majority of licensing authorities require freelancers to have some sort of office space within their jurisdiction, even if it is something as basic as a flexi-desk or a so-called smart office, which is often already built into the price of the company set-up package offered. (GN)
