The salon business in Dubai is a booming business since the 2000’s. Why? You may ask… United Arab Emirates is not just any ordinary country, it’s a hub for global business, and who runs these businesses? People like you and me. People from all around the world travel to Dubai one of the world’s favorite travel destination for business, relaxation, vacations etc. when you are in a place like Dubai everyone wants to look their best and that gives great demand for services such as salon, spas, beauty treatments etc.
– decide where in UAE you want to start your Ladies salon or Gents salon. Dubai is always a preferred location to start your salon as Dubai is a hub for business currently. You can buy the place or rent it out and get the tenancy contract or Ejari, with this we can apply for the initial approval and you can carry out with your fit-outs with your owner’s permission. You can contact any interior designer for a plan / drawing / fit-out, they will give you a blue print based on the requirements from Dubai Municipality & Dubai Civil Department such as the height between the floor and the ceiling, signboard placements, fire exits, toilets, washing area, storage area etc.
Name – select a unique name for your Ladies salon or Gents salon. Did you know that UAE doesn’t allow a unisex salon? Yes, it can be a Ladies salon or Gents salon. Once you have decided a name we will reserve your name with DED.
– have you decided who will be your local agent? Don’t choose just anyone. This is your business and you need to protect it. We offer corporate service agents instead of individuals. This way you’re not dealing with an individual or future problem of dealing with the individuals heir but a company and we will make sure we protect your business.
– now DED has made it so easy, you don’t need anyone to draft your LSA agreement, DED will do it for you. The LSA agreement will state that the company management, signing authority, banking, all decision makings, and liquidation of the company, opening a new branch, profits and losses belongs to you alone. This document will be legalized and notarized in court.
issuance – we will submit your Initial approval, Trade name reservation certificate, Ejari, Passport and visa copy, Ejari to DED to get the Payment Voucher. Once this is paid your license will be issued.
A tip for you – your trade will be issued with remarks if you haven’t completed your interiors and fit-outs. Once the interiors and fit-outs are completed Dubai Municipality and Civil department will have an inspection, if certain fit-outs are not as per their standards they will ask you to redesign if all the fit-outs are perfect they will give the approval and the trade license without any remarks will be issued. Now you can start your Ladies salon or Gents salon giving makeovers to people and making them look their best.
card – once your license is ready and your salon is open for customer’s what’s the next important thing you need? Staffs to work for you!!! For which you will need your company Establishment & Labor card. With these cards you can apply for Investor or Employment visas. The investor visa will be valid for 3 years and the employment visa will be valid for 2 years.
– Don’t you need a bank account to keep all your profits? We will connect you with the most leading banks in UAE, they will assist you with everything you need and open your bank account without any hassle.
