Companies in the UAE require the services of a Government Liaison Officer, otherwise known as a Public Relations Officer. Public Relations Officer (PRO) services refer to professional document clearing services, pertaining to processing governmental documents and paperwork. PRO services encompass immigration formalities, issuance of business licenses, passport clearance, etc.
Business setup in Dubai involves legal procedures in accordance with the Department of Economic Development (DED), the Ministry of Labour, the Dubai Immigration and other public departments. PRO services can come in handy if one is new to the corporate milieu in Dubai or doesn’t have considerable experience in business set up here.
What Are the Benefits of PRO Services?
Many of the tasks under PRO services are legal requirements for all companies and employees in Dubai. Complying with these processes on a timely basis reduces the risk of unnecessary fines or setbacks for a business.
