“We were very fortunate to have worked with AstroLabs to assist us to set up our company in KSA. From the start, they were very open and transparent in the process, they were available whenever we needed and proactive in following up on the status of the application. I will, and already have, recommended AstroLabs to support start-ups in their ventures in KSA.”
“I was very impressed with the quick and responsive support we got from AstroLabs. Their local team is well aware of government regulations and requirements which helped us get our license smoothly. I would definitely recommend AstroLabs for companies looking to setup in Saudi Arabia.”
“It was a very easy, fast process. I gave my company name, I answered some questions, I gave my passport, and literally got my commercial registration and my investment license in a couple of weeks. It was so incredibly easy!”
AstroLabs signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with SAGIA – now the Ministry of Investment – in November 2018, when we were issued the first foreign investment license for a business incubator. In our first year, we subsequently supported over 50 companies, valued at over USD$2bn, with their expansion into Saudi Arabia through our turnkey business set up solutions.
We’ll help you issue all of the required licenses to operate your company in Saudi Arabia with 100% foreign ownership, including registering with the Ministry of Investment, Ministry of Commerce (Commercial Registration), Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of Labor, General Organization for Social Insurance, General Authority for Zakat and Tax, and Wasel Address. After we complete these steps on your behalf, you’ll be able to open a bank account, sponsor visas, and start doing business legally across Saudi Arabia. We include in our package three months of coworking at AstroLabs Riyadh for the first member of your team, serving as your soft-landing office.
AstroLabs’ specialized team in Riyadh has navigated the complex and time consuming business license setup process for over 50 companies to date. We will help you setup a 100% foreign-owned onshore entity without the need for a local partner. You will be able to operate anywhere in the Kingdom with no minimum capital requirement. AstroLabs will help you get licensed in an expedited time frame of 2-3 weeks and our coworking space in Riyadh serves as your soft landing as you are required to register a physical office to open a company in Saudi Arabia. AstroLabs Riyadh is a purpose-built workspace with WiFi, meeting rooms, and office supplies, offering you a scalable office solution that grows with your team. Additionally, you will be part of AstroLabs community which would help you get new partners, potential clients, and subsidized services.
The Ministry of Investment is the government entity that licenses foreign companies to operate in Saudi Arabia without a local partner. This is a mainland license with 100% foreign ownership. The Investor License is open to companies of all sizes setting up in the Kingdom, including international expansions of existing entities.
The most common business activities we license are those in the services sector. Please note, certain activities are restricted such as recruitment, medical, and certain types of consulting (other than management).
We are currently achieving MISA license issuance, Commercial Registration, and Chamber of Commerce certification within 2-3 weeks. The company will be fully established within 3 months.
The assigned general manager from your side would need to be present twice, one for issuing the commercial registration, and one for issuing the residency card.
