Foreign businessmen who decide to relocate to the Emirates have the possibility of setting up foundations, in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Chamber of Commerce in the UAE. The non-governmental organizations, social clubs, and associations are the main foundations a foreigner can establish in Dubai. For a proper understanding of the legislation in this matter, it is recommended to talk to our lawyers in Dubai who can also guide you throughout the entire registration process.
The foundations are non-profit organizations which can be set up by respecting the rules and regulations imposed by the Ministry of Community Development in the Emirates. The social clubs are the most preferred non-governmental organizations (NGOs) a foreign or local entrepreneur choose to establish. These can deal with club event organizations or social care facilities. Besides the special license which is issued by the Community Development Authority in the UAE, one should prepare the establishment of the foundation, the activities and also the application form.
