Jebel Ali Offshore

The Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority is the oldest and most respected of the free zones that have been allowed to operate in the emirate of Dubai. This type of incorporation is allowed to trade internationally and is allowed to own property in the emirate of Dubai. Corporate shareholders are permitted. Should the incorporator lease an office space within JAFZA, they will then be entitled to one director residence visa. As usual with all UAE incorporations, this entity is also allowed to own and operate a Dubai bank account. The JAFZA offshore company allows the incorporator to enjoy 100% repatriation of capital and assets, with no limits on foreign exchange or capital movements inside or outside the country.
