Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority

Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZA) was established as a free economic zone in 1996 and is one of the fastest growing free zones in the UAE, contributing 4.7 per cent of Dubai's gross domestic product. It is located at Dubai International Airport, and spans over 170 acres. DAFZA houses several companies in the sectors of aviation and aerospace, IT and telecommunications, electronics, medicine, logistics, food and beverage, and luxury goods.

DAFZA was developed to bring up Dubai as an investment-driven economy. It is an ideal choice for the aforementioned business domains owing to its strategic location in the heart of Dubai, convenient access to Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Asia-Pacific regions, cutting-edge infrastructure, state-of-the-art amenities, an investor-friendly milieu, and a host of other benefits that come along with setting up a company in a free zone in the UAE. DAFZA also has the provision of several tertiary business support services like registration, banking, housekeeping, licensing, etc. on site.


  • Provision of 100% foreign ownership
  • No restriction on capital repatriation
  • No import or re-export duties
  • No personal income tax
