A foreign company may choose to establish a branch office in the UAE. Under this setup, the foreign company has 100% ownership of its branch office, but it cannot independently import or export goods and products. However, if your business activity is considered commercial or industrial, you will still require a local sponsor. A branch office must also use a local trading firm to move products.


Branch set up is limited to certain business activities and can be quite complicated. NUR International’s consultants take care of the formation process, completing each step with professional expertise. We collect up-to-date information on branch set up rules and regulations so that we are always prepared to help our clients.
