Free Zones in Dubai

The United Arab Emirates government has implemented a minimum 2-year contract for employees and clients to avoid staff from moving to another job. If you decided to resign from work earlier than your contract, it would be an automatic ban for breach of the contract stated in the UAE labour law. If you are in a labour ban, it means that you don’t have the right to work in companies that are not under the free zone. That’s why we decided to provide you with a list of free zone areas that can significantly benefit your work and stay in the UAE.
