The services are part of a comprehensive and integrated system to manage the experience of SAIF Zone customers with high speed and efficiency. The zone offers highly professional customer care with a high ability to respond and deal with any issues that might arise.

The SAIF Zone strives to take the experience of foreign investors to new heights of excellence and efficiency, which is part of its relentless efforts to further attract the flow of foreign direct investment to Sharjah.

“We always strive to enhance innovation in our services so that our investors can get a smooth and seamless experience. Such new services reflect the development process we continuously carry out in our digital infrastructure to provide further support to the business community and improve the quality of services provided to them.”

To maintain its position among the Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) most innovative free zones and enhance the ease of doing business, the SAIF-Zone offers a package of digital services running autonomously without any human intervention through an intelligent operations center.

The addition of new features comes in line with the aspirations of the leadership of Sharjah and government directions to adopt best practices, build an advanced digital system to serve investors in a sustainable manner, and offer integrated services and streamlined work mechanisms to save investors’ time and effort.

The privileges and services offered by SAIF Zone aim to facilitate procedures of its investors by going paperless and helping them manage their businesses efficiently while they are on the go.

The SAIF Zone has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Microsoft to enhance cooperation in the field of information technology and systems. The MoU was meant to leverage Microsoft’s expertise in providing the latest technology and practical training to the staff of the Free Zone.
