Freelance Permit | Get your UAE Freelance Visa

Freelancers are professionals who are not engaged by a corporation on a long-term basis. They are self-employed individuals who operate in a variety of creative fields such as art, sport, personal development, photography, education, or the media.

For a long period, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) did not recognize this type of worker. It generated a great deal of ambiguity in terms of making their work lawful and obtaining residency in the UAE.
