The northernmost emirate in the UAE is Ras Al Khaimah, which is home to the free zone RAKEZ. Ras Al Khaimah is one of the best free zones for trade since the emirate is home to seaports, superhighways, and an international airport and is ideally located to support trade flow between east and west. 

RAKEZ offers affordable company formation (prices starting at AED 11,500) and is one of the free zones that offers fast incorporation. RAKEZ offers solutions for both free zone and non-free zone businesses, including facilities that range from flexible office spaces to large warehouses. 

With a rich culture, scenic mountain views, 64km of shoreline, a comfortable average temperature, and a smaller population than other major cities in the UAE, Ras Al Khaimah is an idyllic place to live and work.
