Local Sponsor in Dubai, UAE

Overview Of Local Sponsorship Services In Dubai

The setting up of a business by a foreigner in the UAE Mainland needs a UAE national to be their local agent as per the commercial companies’ federal law no: 2 of 2015. A local sponsor in Dubai can be an individual UAE national or a corporate entity. However, choosing the right sponsor is very crucial to the existence of your business; that’s the reason why we consider various aspects before we recommend or provide our clients with a local sponsor in UAE, thus saving time and unnecessary back and forth.

At Avyanco Sponsorship our customers enjoy total freedom from the UAE national sponsor for business in Dubai as we empower the Foreign national with a special Power of Attorney to remove the UAE national at any point of time from the investor’s company; a memorandum of understanding is also provided to the investor to protect the profit and shares of the company as our sponsor transfers/waive all the rights of the company to the foreign investor against the fixed sponsorship amount payable to him.

Types of Local Sponsors

In Dubai, you have several options available when it comes to selecting a local sponsor. You can opt for an individual sponsor, a corporate sponsor, or a local service agent.

1. Individual Sponsors

Individual Sponsors may be of any gender, but they must be UAE citizens aged 21 or older. While they are not mandated to have expertise in your particular business sector, it is recommended that they have a professional background, own a business, or hold a government position.

2. Corporate Sponsors

Corporate sponsors, as the name suggests, are business entities. They may include any local or government-registered business operating within the UAE. It is imperative to note that only some corporate entities are eligible to be a sponsor; they must possess the requisite government license for this role.

3. Local Service Agents

Local service agents are also an option when establishing a professional services business. In such instances, foreign entrepreneurs can retain full ownership, but they must engage a service agent who will facilitate interactions with government authorities. These local service agents are compensated through an annual fee for their provided services.

How much does a local UAE sponsor charge annually?

Can I get a refund of local sponsorship fees paid to a UAE national?

What is meant by corporate sponsorship in Dubai for company formation in UAE?

If you have concerns about a relatively unknown individual getting their foot in your business’s door, there is another possible option – corporate sponsorship. The process is quite similar, except that you will be sponsored by an existing company instead of an individual. This will put you on firmer ground since a company sponsor is likely to pose less risk than an individual. It also allows for a stronger governance structure to safeguard foreign investment and enables issues like shareholder succession to be resolved under company law. Typically, you will also be provided with a dedicated team to assist with license and visa renewals and any other ad-hoc support required to operate the company.

Do I need a local sponsor for free zone company setup?

No, you don’t need a local sponsor to setup a company in Dubai freezone. A free zone company can be owned 100% by an expatriate shareholder(s).
