    lead: I’m currently working in Saudi in the oil fields, employed by COSL, but paid through my own company, registered in Scotland.
    I’m looking to set up a similar idea but registered in the UAE. I therefore do not need an office etc. So, how would I go about this, if it is even possible?

    1) it would be working in the oil fields in Saudi Arabia, on a 28/28 days rotation but through my own company based in the UAE.
    2) I would need a residents Visa for myself only
    3) I’m pretty much living in Abu Dhabi on a tourist Visa (28 days in the Emirates, 28 days out) Is there a difference between here and Dubai for setting up a business?
    4) No need for a physical office space.

    I want to set up my company, working for myself in the offshore, oil and gas. I have full employment in this sector. Yes, I would need a bank account.

    I would be a contractor working on the oil rig.
    I will go to a rig and perform the duties that are requested. My job title is Barge Engineer. I invoice the company for my time, so the only “trading” is myself working for that company
