Setting up a new business within Dubai Maritime City

Looking to register a maritime business?


How does a company set up their operations?

The registration of a business license is managed by Trakhees, which also operates under the Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC). Dubai Maritime City advises companies to approach Trakhees to obtain an initial approval for their business operations when setting up a new business.

Once an initial approval has been received, an entity can approach Dubai Maritime City to learn more about leasing options and complete the leasing process. After this process is completed, the entity is advised to return to Trakhees with the completed leasing documents to complete the business license process.

If an existing established business with a mainland license would like to set up operations in Dubai Maritime City, the leasing process can be initiated based on the existing mainland license.
