Freelancer visa to Dubai - Makebiz

There is no such thing as a freelance visa in the UAE. It is often used when referring to a Freelance Permit.

A freelance permit is a license to carry out professional activities. To work as a freelancer, specialties are available in the field of:

  • Education;
  • Design;
  • IT fields (programmers, developers);
  • Photos;
  • Cinema and Media;
  • Creative professions;
  • Marketing and Advertising;
  • Consultations for businesses and individuals.

In turn, a resident visa is issued on the basis of a freelance permit. A freelancer can get a visa for 1 or 2 years. The difference in price is minimal, so the most popular is a 2-year visa. What is necessary to obtain a resident visa and how the registration process takes place, we wrote in another article.

Freelance Permit is one of the most budgetary reasons for obtaining a freelancer visa and starting your own business in the UAE with the lowest possible costs.

The UAE government, together with various Free Zones, supports freelancers in every possible way and strives to create favorable conditions for attracting specialists from different fields, from all over the world. Thus, some Free Zones offer freelancers:

  • A free workplace in a coworking for a certain number of hours per week;
  • Free internet;
  • Access to meeting rooms for meetings with clients for up to 5 people;
  • Access to the professional business community of entrepreneurs and the opportunity to present their business to investors.
