Local Partner Services
A corporate entity fully owned by UAE national(s) holds 51% share in your Mainland (DED) Operating LLC to fulfill the requirements of having an Emirati Local Partner as per the UAE Commercial Law. In this type of sponsorship arrangement, the business is sponsored by a company, rather than an individual.
Individual sponsorship is a traditional type of local sponsorship in the UAE. A UAE national becomes your Local Emirati Sponsor by holding a 51% share under their personal name in your Mainland (DED) Operating LLC. Whilst the Local Emirati Partner is the main shareholder of the company, he/she would provide a Power of Attorney (POA) to the expatriate business owner.
