    Frequently Asked Questions

    Support our freelancers community and feel free to e-mail us your suggested inquiries to be displayed on our website.
    What is the difference between a work permit and a freelance license?

    A work permit is issued by a company that employs you and offers an Emirates ID and visa, while a business license enables you to sponsor yourself and receive an investor visa of your own.

    How do I receive my fitness certificate?

    The work permit package includes your medical fitness exam (blood test and chest X-Ray) and you will have to present yourself at a dedicated center, chosen by your employer which might be outside Dubai. You can also opt out to have your tests done in any other facility, at you own cost.

    Note: Only a valid Fit To Work certificate will enable you to have your Emirates ID issued.

    Can I have my permit issued if I don't have a degree or certificate?

    For activities such as media or professional, the permit can be issued based on your CV, previous experience and a short business plan. Academic or Educational activities do require a certificate.

    If you require help with drafting a business plan to be approved, you may check our service page here.

    Is there a medical insurance included?

    No, the medical insurance is not included, but you can opt for a basic or premium one, depending on your requirements. You can check our service page here for a customized quotation.

    Why do I need an NOC?

    A Non Objection Certificate is released by your employer at your request, if you decide to practice a job as a freelancer or use any services that might require it.

    How many activities can I choose?

    With the freelance work permit you can choose only one activity. If you plan being licensed for more than one activity, please visit the freelance business license page, where you can add up to 6 activities.

    Can I apply for permit without having visa and residence?

    No, for permits to be issued you require a valid Emirates ID and visa. If you do not have residency in the UAE, please refer to the packages which includes this service.

    Is there an age limit for permits application?

    Yes, you must not be above 58 years old and applicants must have a degree if applying for visa as well.
