With a cutting-edge infrastructure, investment-friendly market, state-of-the-art business facilities, focus on foreign direct investment, Dubai has become one of the best places where you can start your business.

However, if you are an expat, you might not be too familiar with the regulations, norms, policies, and laws that affect business operations. This is the main reason the Dubai Government recommends every foreign businessman or entrepreneur to have a local sponsor for them to establish a business in mainland Dubai.

What is a local sponsor?Local sponsor refers to dormant partners (nominee shareholders) and local service agents. These sponsors should have a family book, a valid Dubai passport, and of course be a UAE national. By law, they are mandated to hold either a share in your company or be an agent, which will be decided on mutual agreements and based on the license setup.

How to choose a local sponsor?There are various types of local sponsors in Dubai: the corporate local sponsor, individual local sponsor, and local service agent. How you choose a sponsor would depend on the nature of your company & license, the industry where your company falls into, size of company, and your budget.

Local sponsors are an indispensable aspect of your business if you are planning to put up a company in mainland Dubai. Before you hire a local sponsor, you need to do a thorough background check. Pay special attention to the residency of the local sponsor, his/her family background, and history of work.
