What is Corporate Sponsorship and How Creative Zone Can Help You With Your Business Set-up Needs?

If you are a foreign national looking to set up a business on the Dubai Mainland, then local sponsorship is mandatory. The term ‘local sponsor’ refers to a local partner who is a locally-residing UAE national mandated to own at least 51% of the shares of the company. The local partner vouches for your trustworthiness to allow you entry into Dubai for business, visit, or employment. There are 3 types of local sponsorships available for setting up a business in Dubai, namely Corporate Sponsorship, Individual Sponsorship, and Local Service Agent. 

What is Corporate Sponsorship?

When a UAE-based company owned by local nationals holds 51% of the shares and liabilities of a company owned by a foreign investor, it is called Corporate Sponsorship.

In this type of sponsorship, the local sponsor is a UAE national company and not an individual. Corporate sponsorship option is common and very suitable for opening up an LLC in Dubai.
