Set up in 3 simple stages

The three-stage process has been designed with simplicity in mind and provides our investors with a clear road map and timeline from initial inquiry to licensing and registration.

Defining your project

First, you’ll need to scope out your project parameters and refine your business plan. This will require a preliminary technical assessment, a visit to the site, and the outlining of your requirements for land or ready-built industrial units.

Application & approval

Then, you’ll need to submit your application form and payment. Once approved, QFZA will allocate appropriate real estate for your project.

Register, leasing and licensing

Finally, the lease agreement is issued, signed and secured. At the same time, the registration and licensing process kicks off.

Life in Qatar

Qatar isn’t just a good place to do business, it’s a great place to live.

Qatar Free Zones benefits from a stable political situation and a currency pegged to the U.S. dollar. It also boasts one of the world’s best healthcare systems, low crime rates, world-class international schools, cultural attractions and world-class recreational facilities.

Doha, Qatar’s capital city, is home to a constantly changing skyline with dozens of five-star hotels and leading restauranteurs, including Alain Ducasse and Michelin-starred Vineet Bhatia. With a large expat community, laws in Qatar allow pork and alcohol to be sold, and the country practices religious tolerance, with several Christian facilities including a Catholic church.
