  1. Hi Richard, I hope this email finds you well, My name is Dario Ambrogio, and I am running a veterinary business in the UK over the last two years. The business is very small at moment and I would like to relocate it in Dubai. To do this I will need finance. I was wondering if ky history of trading could be used to apply for finances in UAE. Thank you. Kind regards Dario Question from Dario Ambrogio on 16/11/2020

    Richard says:

    Thank you very much Dario - unfortunately, it is very unlikely that any bank will provide finance based on past business activity, outside of the UAE. To have any chance, in my opinion, you would need to have been trading here, have a residence visa etc. to be able to apply for finance.

    Many thanks and Kind Regards
