The UAE has over 50 free zones with some offering generic activities to all industries, whereas other free zones are industry specific. You can opt for a free zone company formation in UAE in any of these free zones.
The concept of a free zone, otherwise known as a free trade zone, is to provide free trading and an industry ecosystem within a set jurisdiction. Free zones are usually attached to ports (such as JAFZA) and/or are industry specific.
Some examples include media free zones, such as Sharjah Media City, Dubai Media City and Fujairah Creative City and technology and IT free zones, like Dubai Silicon Oasis. DMCC is popular for Dubai free zone company formation. Each one is designed to boost international business by providing 100% ownership to expatriates and companies establishing a branch or representative office.
