Business Setup

We take care of the entire incorporation process, from arranging legal translations and Notary public signings through to submitting documents and applications at appropriate government departments, so that you can focus your time and energy on developing your business and relationships.

Local Sponsor

We provide a corporate, nominee local partner service to provide foreign companies with security and control of your Abu Dhabi business. Find out about the full benefits of Gateway acting as a local sponsor, such as having beneficial ownership, retaining 100% of your profits, and having full management control of your business.

Visa Processing

All employees in the UAE are required to have a valid employment visa and Emirates ID card.  Gateway provides a visa processing and Emirates ID application service for our clients and their families.  We’ll manage the process for you and accompany you to the mandatory medical screening and supply of biometrics so that you have full support through the process.

What we Offer

We help foreign companies looking to enter the Abu Dhabi market to understand what options are most suitable for their business; how to mitigate any risks and then manage incorporation of their new business through to getting their Trade License and subsequently assist with the processing of visas and Emirates ID cards for their staff.
We also help existing Abu Dhabi-based companies who want to share transfer away from existing sponsors or to change their National Service Agent.
