The other FEZ is Jebel Ali. It has its own seaport. It is supposed to be able to obtain a residence visa and purchase real estate. A legal entity must file a report. It is possible to work in any permitted area.

Work is possible in the RAKEZ area. The company receives an exemption from income tax; no annual reporting is required. In the Ajman zone it is possible to do business in different areas and the company is also exempt from income tax. No reporting is required as well.
