Setup Business in UAE Blog

Has anyone in here set up a (media) company or sole proprietorship at Sharjah Media City Free Zone (SHAMS)?

What are views on the process? Any problems encountered after setting up? Are you restricted in any way?

If you transliterated Sharjah Media City from English to Arabic (making something like and then abbreviated it to form: (Shams)

probably SHAMS is not an acronym but like a coined term?

I commented above but I set mine up almost a year ago with them, it was really good. Relatively easy a few small hiccups and had to make the trip to Sharjah a few times but if you've got a friend who can drive you there it's not too bad. Again, I think they reward referrals so if you're willing, PM me. Maybe I could help you out with transport there too, if you're stuck.

Did you manage to setup a business bank account with your eCommerce license? I ran into a wall with this license, because most banks wont open. What did you do if I may ask :)?

Dont trust it. The acronym says it all.

I set mine up there almost a year ago, it's good. Very quick and easy, really. No issues, it was very easy. I think I can get a reward from them for referring somebody, PM me if you're willing to be my referral.

What seems to be causing the delay in getting the Visa?

I just set mine (e-commerce) up a month ago. Still waiting on the visa though...

My cousin works in a company that helps set up companies in free zones, SHAMS included. I can refer you to her if you want?

Sharjah Media City Free Zone I'm just wondering how that abbreviates to Shams.
