The following documents shall be submitted to register a company:

  • copy of the identification card of the founder;
  • statement of account;
  • any document evidencing the actual registration address of the founder such as a copy of utility bill or any other payment document specifying the full name and registration address.


The companies are registered in the UAE through intermediary of the agents obtaining the respective license and authorization.
