Most professional services would require a professional license to carry out such activities in the UAE. The operators or the professional license holders would need to have the right education qualification to procure such license. Professional services like lawyers, architects, consultants would fall under this category.
The professional license has an advantage in the aspect that this license does not require that the shareholding of the entity be 51% held by a UAE national. In the professional license a UAE national would act as a service agent only.
Enterprise House can assist in the entire processing of the license including finding local service agent as a reasonable fee.
