Different types of policies adopted by the UAE government and Free zone Authorities to empower women in the UAE?

Government Policies

The UAE Government, especially the Dubai government is always eager to introduce new policies to empower women in the region. It does not matter if one is a local Emirati or expatriates. The rules and regulation are equal for all. In the year 2006, the Dubai Government introduced Dubai women Establishment (DWE). The main aim of this wing is to support women to be a good entrepreneur. That will also help in the growth of the economy of the country.

Dubai Economic Department introduces E-Trading license to attract women and young entrepreneurs to start their business with bare minimum investment. Now even free zones are providing great opportunities to women to start their business, in which a woman can start their business with a minimum fee. Women can form a free zone company and you can add three activities in one license irrespective of the business activities like trading or consultancy.

Visa for widows and expatriate divorcees

Before 2018, widows and expatriate divorcees had to leave the country along with their sponsor when the visa was canceled. But after 2018, the UAE government has introduced new visa rules for widows and expatriate divorcees in the UAE. The new amendment is that the widowed women or expatriate divorcees are approved to stay in the country until the expiry of their visa. Also now widows and divorcees are allowed to obtain a one-year visa and also, they can sponsor their dependents.

Ten – year visa for Investor/Entrepreneurs

Recently, the UAE government has introduced a ten year or long-term visa for the investors and entrepreneurs in the region. So, entrepreneurs including women are very interested to start their business or invest in the UAE with the introduction of the long-term visa in the UAE. The Government has also introduced a new visa policy to attract more investors and entrepreneurs in the UAE. The new policy enhances women to be more stable and build confidence in their business for the long term. This progressive policy will change the vision of entrepreneurs and investors. – Can you give check whether is this active because I don’t find government actively doing the same

Specific Industry

Women are eager to start some specific type of business like e-commerce, web portal, HR Consultancy, management consultancy etc. This kind of business activities can be conducted from home also and they can work on their own free times. So, whenever the government or Free Zones are introducing new policies or offers of licenses for women entrepreneurs, they are more interested in it.
