I have been living in Dubai for 13 years and currently have a lucrative but high stress job. I want to quit and start my own business of designing ethnic clothing. I was wondering if I can set up an on-line business in Dubai without going through the hassle of getting a license. I have known a lot of people who are selling their stuff through Face book and I was hoping to do something similar. Is it legal to sell my clothes on-line without a license?
What I would suggest is that you contact ARTE as you cannot sell a product from your home (unless you have a trade licence and your home is a registered retail location like along Al Wasl Road), you have to sell your items at events which have a proper licence like ARTE. They also have an on-line sales section.
