Who Is Gateway?

Gateway specializes in helping companies expand into Dubai and Abu Dhabi quickly and efficiently.  Its clients avoid the complexities and bureaucracy of navigating government departments and processes, as well as organizing local suppliers because Gateway takes care of the entire company incorporation.

Gateway is run by British expats who themselves have been through exactly the same process as you and your business of moving to a new country, finding out how to do things and ultimately investing in setting up their own companies in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai.  They understand the anxiety of starting a business in a foreign country, as well as organising visas and work permits for expat employees and residence visas for their families.

Gateway has also carved itself a unique position in onshore company formation in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.  It uniquely offers a selection of corporate local sponsor packages in both jurisdictions. It's platinum package is particularly popular with British companies which don't have Emirati business connections because it is 100% owned by a British national and his daughter, thus they appreciate the familiarity of having a local sponsor of their own nationality.
