Setting Up a Business in Dubai and the UAE

For people pondering a move to the UAE, Setting up in Dubai by Essam Al Tamimi gives plenty of helpful information but to people thinking of establishing a business in the Emirates, this book is compulsory reading, especially if one is eager to avoid the pitfalls and expedite the process smoothly.

The book covers much general information about life in Dubai and the UAE and specific chapters deal with legal issues, immigration and customs, business associations, employment issues, housing, health and education, transport, leisure activities, local customs, language and a CD comes with the book containing all the application forms one might need.

A more comprehensive review of this book, with price and publishing details, is posted at:
