Umm al Quwain Free Trade Zone

Umm Al Quwain is renowned for its environmental beauty including a vast desert landscape and unique flora and fauna.

What is UAQFTZ?

Umm Al Quwain Free Trade Zone (UAQFTZ) is based in an emirate known for its friendliness, as well as its progressive and prosperous views of business development – such as its open investment climate. It is fast becoming an exciting leisure destination for those travelling domestically and internationally. It is similarly becoming a strategic base for companies to do business within the MENA region due to its relatively close proximity to Dubai (only 45km away) and its low costs of living and labour.
