Ajman Offshore is regulated by the Ajman Free Zone Authority, and similar to other offshore jurisdictions there are no taxes and the company’s confidentiality is kept intact as the address is that of the registered agent.

Over and above these, founders and directors of an Ajman Offshore company are not required to have a residence visa. However, directors and/or shareholders also are not eligible to get a residence visa from the offshore company they are a part of. There is only one director required for registering a company at Ajman Offshore.
