By obtaining a freelance license and visa from the UAQ FTZ, you become a registered freelancer in the UAE who is eligible to carry out their chosen profession with full legal support. A freelance license or work permit allows an individual to operate as a freelance professional, and conduct business in one’s birth name as opposed to a brand name or company.
It is designed for individuals who operate in technology, media and film sectors, and is issued to talent roles, creative roles and selected administrative roles.
To apply for your freelance permit, follow the procedure below. Get these documents ready before moving your application:
