Dubai is an icon of entrepreneurship and modernity in the Arab World, globally recognised as the Middle East’s international trade and business hub. It is home to a highly cosmopolitan society and a rich and vibrant culture - where East meets West.

Dubai is a leader in travel, tourism and the conference and exhibition industries. Combined with outstanding infrastructure, a state-of-the-art telecommunications network and unparalleled connectivity, doing business has never been easier.

Dubai is a perfect location for families, with some of the best education, healthcare, shopping, sport and leisure opportunities in the world. The hosting of numerous high-profile sporting events and exhibitions, the availability of high-quality luxury hotels and the white sand and sparkling waters of the Gulf ensure that enjoying free-time is equally as rewarding as doing business.

The DIFC was established to provide the requisite legal and business environment to support business and financial institutions to reach into and out of the emerging markets of the region. It is a Federal Financial Free Zone, administered by the Government of Dubai, and established pursuant to United Arab Emirates Federal Law and the laws of the Emirate of Dubai.

The DIFC is an autonomous jurisdiction within the UAE, with its own legal system and courts distinct from those of the wider UAE. The DIFC’s independent jurisdiction extends to a range of areas, including corporate, commercial, real estate, civil, employment, trusts and securities law matters. Other laws of the UAE or the Emirate of Dubai, such as criminal law and immigration regulations, continue to apply within the DIFC.
