Set Up in DHCC

Join Us…

When you set up business in DHCC you join a growing community in the heart of the Middle East’s commercial and medical tourism capital. Dubai is now 6th in the Medical Tourism Association’s rankings with its rapidly developing proposition underpinned by enhanced patient safety and global talent delivering world-class health services.

With wellbeing high on the national agenda, as a business in DHCC you will also get access to a surging population, with an increasingly ageing demographic who will make up 29% of the country’s residents by 2050 and who place great stock in excellence of care and cutting-edge treatments.

What’s more, as DHCC is a free zone, you will wholly own your business, whether with a clinical or non-clinical facility, and set-up couldn’t be easier. Thanks to DHCC’s commitment to boost efficiencies in line with Dubai’s smart cities goals, the three-step registration can be completed online through Dubai Health City Authority’s (DHCA) Masaar e-services system.

Furthermore, specialists in the medical, scientific, research and technical fields can apply for 10-year residency visas.

We encourage set up across healthcare, education, hospitality, retail, and wellness clusters through a range of investment models including freehold land sales, leasing, and joint ventures with a DHCA professional guiding you step-by-step through the process.
