Establish-a-company-in-the-fishing-sector-in-DubaiWith access to the Persian Gulf, one of the most transited waterways in the region, Dubai offers excellent opportunities to investors interested in setting up a business in the maritime sector. Speaking of the maritime industry, foreign enterprisers who want to fully own a company in the UAE can choose the Dubai Maritime City Free Zone, an economic area which offers many facilities to businesses operating in this sector. Those who want to avoid dealing with lengthy procedures related to the trading sector, can set up fishing companies in Dubai and its free zones.

Our company registration agents in Dubai can offer information on the procedures related to opening a fishing business in the emirate.

Registering a business in the fishing sector in Dubai

With a rich culture which attracts many tourists, Dubai restaurants have developed a taste for combining various cooking styles which respond to the request of those seeking to try the local cuisine which includes seafood, including fish, which is why opening a fishing company is quite a successful venture.

The formation process of a Dubai fishing company will start at the Department of Economic Development where the business must be registered. Foreign enterprisers opening fishing businesses here must appoint Dubai company formation agents to handle the registration procedure.

Obtaining a fishing license in Dubai

Following the incorporation of the Dubai fishing company, the most important requirements will be to purchase and register the boat or boats and applying for a fishing license. This is a special license which enables fishing companies in Dubai to start operating. The fishing license is obtained from the Environment Department within the Dubai Municipality.

The following documents must be filed with the Environment Department when applying for a fishing license:

  • -          a valid ID document of the applicant;
  • -          a recent photograph;
  • -          a boat license;
  • -          proof of residency in the case of foreign citizens;
  • -          employment contract.

The Dubai fishing license has a one-year validity and can be renewed.
