Ajman free zone (AFZA) is located in the emirate of Ajman within 25 min drive from the international airports and in a close proximity to Ajman Port.
Ajman free zone was founded in 1988, which led to active industrial growth in the emirate of Ajman (UAE).
AFZA is actively developing and attracting more and more entrepreneurs for business setup in Ajman. In line with this move, Ajman free zone management made a decision to allow its client-companies pay licensing fees in multiple installments. Now payments can be made annually, bi-yearly, three times per year, or even on a monthly basis.
