Document checklist for issuing new licenses in general are as follows:

Part 1: Obtain an initial approval:

  • A copy of the licensee’s passport.  
  • A copy of the UAE national’s family book or ID card.  
  • A copy of the applicant’s residence permit/visa details (for non- GCC nationals).  
  • No objection letter from the applicant’s current sponsor (for non-GCC nationals) to practice business activity. 
  • Permission from the Dubai Courts to practice business activity for applicants under 21 years old (in the sole proprietorships and local service agents).  
  • Approval issued by other government authorities depending on the type of activity, if required. * 
  • You can apply for the initial approval online through DED’s website.

Note: Having obtained an initial approval, the applicant can reserve a suitable trade name through DED’s website; however, a trade name may be booked earlier. 

Part 2: After the initial approval and booking a trade name, you need to submit the following: 

  • Initial approval receipt and all documents submitted earlier.  
  • A copy of the tenancy contract duly authenticated by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA).
