Partners choosing to set up in Dubai Healthcare City have a range of free zone facility and service benefits to help them make a sustained success of their ventures. Apart from the prestige of operating from one of the region’s best, and most trusted, business addresses, other benefits include: the ability to operate within Dubai mainland and open branches in other free zones and assistance with securing residency visas for themselves and their staff.
Our first-class property management function provides 24-hour security and cleaning, while meeting and conference rooms are available for hire in The Mohammed bin Rashid Academic Center and Al Jalila Foundation Building.
Partners also join a thriving community which now boasts over 400 facilities and services from international and regional names including renowned clinical facilities, three hotels and a host of restaurants and cafes.
Our location also has huge advantages with partners’ clients having easy access to DHCC via Dubai International Airport, which is only a 10 minutes’ drive from Dubai International Airport, or via the DHCC Dubai Metro station. All these benefits come with DHCC’s proven commitment to developing an enabling ecosystem which provide continuous support ensuring the success of our valued partner portfolio.
Our highly skilled property management and community services function is focussed on ensuring our partners and their clients are welcomed into an environment hallmarked by quality care, safety, and reliability. Whether you are a tenant or buyer this section will tell you all you need to know about the process and gives you quick access to the relevant application processes.
If you’re looking to lease, or are leasing, we will take you through the end-to-end process of approval and renewal.
Through our e-services system you can swiftly and easily transact all your regulatory, immigration and service set up requirements, amendments, and cancellations. This will cover everything you need for employment, to employ others, to study, reside in Dubai, and even drills down to setting up a post office box facility, renewing it, or cancelling it if needed.
This facility is in line with our desire to make your entry into the DHCC community as seamless, simple, and hassle-free as possible. We know businesses and professionals are busy people and we want to get you up and running, and keep you there, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Whether you’re applying for a new commercial license or our proprietary new Zawel start-up licence, which enables you to launch a business in our free zone without a lease agreement or an office space for the first year of operation, you’ve come to the right place.
Our 17-point guide will escort you through the entire licensing requirements no matter at what stage of development you are, whether that’s the transfer of shares, change of management structure, or even if you’re an existing branch operation looking to become a free zone entity, we’ve got you covered! We will even help you secure the banking services you need to specifically suit your interests.
Our proprietary Zawel licence, which is in line with the Dubai Government’s vision towards enhancing business competitiveness and stimulating economic growth, is especially suited to the vital Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) sector. It offers investors minimum start-up costs and up to two visas regardless of legal framework and business type. Our only stipulation is at the time of renewal, after the first year, the entity will require a valid lease agreement. Discover more here.
