Our VIP Business Setup Process

The VIP process is designed to streamline the entire residency visa journey, from registering your company to obtaining your Emirates ID and setting up personal and business bank accounts. 

Here’s a breakdown of the VIP process timeline: 

1. Company Registration (3-5 Business Days)

The initial step involves registering your company in Dubai, a process that typically takes 3 to 5 business days. Remarkably, this part of the process can be completed without your physical presence in the country.

2. E-Visa Application (3-5 Business Days)

Once your company registration is underway, the next phase is initiating your visa application to obtain the pre-authorization employment visa (e-visa). This process can commence at least 2 weeks before your planned arrival in Dubai and is usually completed within 3 to 5 business days. For VIP clients, there’s an option for a 24-hour e-visa issuance.

3. Arrival in Dubai (Saturday or Sunday)

Upon arriving in Dubai, we recommend doing so on a Saturday or Sunday. This allows for seamless processing within the immigration system, demonstrating your presence in the country. Our team will then schedule medical and biometrics appointments for you. 

4. VIP Medical and Biometrics (Monday)

For VIP clients, the medical and biometrics appointments are consolidated into a single day – Monday. With our assistance, you’ll undergo both tests efficiently, and results will be received the same day. 

5. Residency Visa Application (Monday to Wednesday)

Following the successful completion of medical and biometrics tests, we submit the results to apply for your official 2-year residency visa. Typically, this stage takes 3 to 5 days, but with VIP processing, you can expect your residency visa to be issued within 24 hours.

6. Emirates ID Delivery (Thursday or Friday)

Simultaneously with the residency visa issuance, your Emirates ID will be delivered within 2 to 3 business days after completing the medical and biometrics tests. This typically occurs on Thursday or Friday of the same week. 

7. Personal and Business Bank Account Opening

With your residency visa and Emirates ID in hand, the final step involves opening your personal and business bank accounts. Your personal bank account can be opened in one visit, including checking and savings accounts, credit cards, and a multi-currency account. For the corporate business account, we can complete the process virtually within 3 to 7 working days, allowing you to manage it from anywhere in the world.
