Local Sponsor/Agent

‘Local sponsor’ or ‘Local Service Agent’ is one of our business support services which is commonly used in the UAE and refers to local service agents and nominee shareholders (also known as sleeping partners) in mainland companies with foreign investment. A sponsor must be an Emirati (UAE national) with a family membership card (Jinsia). Operating a business in the Dubai Mainland area requires a local sponsor which is a mandatory appointment.

Pro Services

A UAE residency Visa is mandatory for foreign nationals to legally live or work in Dubai and other emirates.
For many working expats, the company that employs them will provide sponsorship for a UAE residence visa. Alternatively,  you can set up your own company in any of the emirates of UAE (free zone or a Local LLC company) and get the residency visa based on being the owner of that company.
Additionally, a residence visa is also compulsory in order to allow you to obtain a driving licence, register a car, apply for a PO Box, buy a property or open a bank account in the UAE.
We at Cratus Business Service UK LTD through Cratus Consulting are one of the leading companies in offering PRO and is certainly a speciality and a key selling point.
