The UAE is a great place to expand your business or even embark on a new venture. However, this can be a process riddled with complexities if you are not familiar with the language or the laws of the land. Hiring a public relations officer (PRO) or a firm that provides PRO services is one of the best methods to overcome this problem.

A professional PRO or company providing PRO services can assist an organization with: obtaining a trade license, shortlisting and finalizing a local sponsor, issuance of employment visa, family residence visa and visit visa, the renewal of a trade license and establishment card renewal in immigration, getting special approval from government departments for all document clearing services, dealing with government bodies like the Ministry of Labour, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai, Department of Economic Development, RTA, the Ministry of Health, various embassies, and many others.

Outsourcing this type of work to an experienced PRO has advantages that far outweigh the fees involving these services as doing so helps one stay on track of the documentation required legally, and to avoid paying penalties and fines due to lapse in renewing the paperwork, be it a license or a visa. It also allows you to focus on business planning, productivity and growth instead of getting bogged down by paperwork.

Handy Hints:

• Hire a PRO to help you deal with business legalities

• Approvals, documentation are managed by the PRO

• This enables owners to focus on growing business
