Excellent service from the team! Whatever questions I have raise, they make sure to cater me with promptness and fully inform and assist every step of the way. Also, they are flexible with the my needs, especially in limited time in UAE, they make sure that my Visa and ID are processed with highest priority, accompanying me all the way through medical checkup and biometric registration. Even banking setup took only 1 day. Great work to Malika, Maria and Earl.Thank you for your hard work and dedication! Very much appreciated!

A very efficient and friendly management consultancy company in Dubai. Used their services to start a "landside" company, obtain rental agreements and extend my business license for another year. Efficient communication and very competitive prices. Dubai has many such companies but Choose UAE stands out because of their attitude and efficiency. I would like to especially mark the wonderful assistance and services provided by Maria and Salman. Highly recommended!
