Gateway is Abu Dhabi’s company formation specialist, dedicated to helping foreign companies set up their Abu Dhabi businesses correctly and cost effectively. By understanding clients’ activities and goals for doing business in Abu Dhabi, Gateway helps them to understand the most suitable routes to market, including the risks, regulatory requirements, and ongoing commitments so that they can make an informed decision that is right for their business and its objectives.
Gateway was set up to help foreign companies after the founding partner’s experience of doing business in Abu Dhabi regularly connected her with companies that had set up incorrectly; had been given incorrect advice; were struggling to understand conflicting/out of date information; and, were struggling to navigate the regulations and processes of setting up here. As such, Gateway’s approach is to share information about setting up and doing business in Abu Dhabi so that companies can make informed decisions that are right for their business and really understand what they are getting involved with.

My passion is company formation, hence I set up Gateway Group of Companies. So many businesses are setup incorrectly here, so my aim is to help foreign companies and individuals make informed decisions when starting a business in Abu Dhabi. I can oversee the entire company formation processs through to getting the Trade License. I can also assist with visa processing and the annual Trade License renewal.
