What we do

Primarily known as a trading centre for a wide variety of commodities, the DMCC is also a community of over 87,500 people who both live and work in Jumeirah Lakes Towers. While the core area of trade is focused around the gold, diamond, agro, pearl, precious metals and tea industries, we also recognise the importance of catering for and supporting all our member companies, meaning that establishing your business with us is just the beginning of our relationship.

Employment and visas

The steps to obtain a visa may differ depending on the type of visa and whether the person is currently in or out of the country. Visa applications are processed through DMCC's online portal and are normally issued within 3-5 working days. However, this is subject to approvals by the Immigration department.

Compliance services

An important part of DMCC’s role as an Authority is to ensure that the rules and regulations of the Free Zone are upheld so that all members are offered optimal opportunity for success. As a result, we have developed an effective compliance framework to ensure that DMCC operations are in line with local and international laws, regulations and best practice. This further ensures that we remain a transparent and trusted partner and employer.
