Here’s a permit for your dream career!

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.
