Thanks.
I've been told that most of these freezones are very easy to deal with and if you've chosen which one's best for you, I wouldn't see any reason not to apply directly through them as you're already based in the UAE. I may be wrong of course ;-)

Good luck!

Fujairah creative is the most convenient. Virtuzone is very expensive and you can't renew without them. I went with another company and it took less than 2 weeks for security check and company docs to be issued.

Could you please let me know which company you went through? And how much did it cost you from start to end.
Thanks.

Check Fujairah Creative City Free Zone. They have a consultancy option. You can contact them and apply directly via email.

I'm just going through the minefield of trying to open a new company.
I just need a company and a bank account, all my work can be done online.
I travel quite a bit and can operate from a laptop but I do need the company based in the UAE if possible.
Can someone point me in the direction of a attractively priced and easy to set up package?

One question I have about setting up in a FTZ is if a customer from teh UAE buys your products online would this be breaching the FTZ regulations and if so how would you prevent this?

Setup business in Dubai is not difficult... You can check many online sites and official website of dubai business setup...

Be careful that domain name must have Country Top Lever Domain (cTLD) like .ae
