UAE residents or individuals who incorporate companies in the UAE can apply and obtain bank accounts in Dubai or in any other emirate as long as they meet the criteria set by the UAE banks including the UAE Central bank.

Please see below the definition of a UAE resident, for your information:

An individual who works for a UAE company and therefore obtains and maintains the residency visa through his/her employer.

An individual who has incorporated a UAE company and therefore applied and obtained his/her residency visa as the owner.

Individuals who own UAE offshore entities, regardless of having residency or not, can apply and obtain a corporate Dubai bank account for their entity.

Individuals who own UAE Onshore (Free Zone) companies can also apply and obtain a corporate bank account for their entity.
