Take note: certain businesses including pharmacies, restaurants, and jewellery stores require additional licenses, permits, and approvals from related authorities.

For an enterprise established in any of Sharjah’s free zone areas, it is not required to appoint a UAE national as a Local Service Agent;
  • Partnership Company – with the exemption of enterprises established in free zone areas, a partnership company is a business structure that has at least one UAE national as a partner. It can have two or more shareholders;
  • Civil Companies - businesses that are established in carrying out professional activities for Sharjah’s mainland. Qualified expat investors can set up civil firms and own majority of the shares provided that one UAE national is appointed as the Local Service Agent;
