Fragomen Launches Nomadic in the UAE as the Middle East Leads in Business Travel Recovery

DUBAI – 26 May, 2023 – Fragomen, the world’s leading provider of immigration services, announces the launch of its business traveler offering, Nomadic, in the United Arab Emirates, marking further expansion of Fragomen’s presence in the Middle East. Fragomen has five practices across three regional business hubs in the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

According to the Global Business Travel Association, business travel in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) is recovering faster than in any other region and is outperforming the recovery in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe. In the UAE alone, the number of visitors during the first half of 2022 was nearly triple the number recorded in first half of 2021. Nomadic delivers solutions for short-term immigration programs, such as business visas and similar short-term cross-border travel and compliance needs.

“A key pathway for international businesses, the Middle East region has been instrumental to Fragomen’s growth strategy. Bringing Nomadic’s world-class technology to this market enables us to further enhance our current service offerings,” said Lance Kaplan, Fragomen’s Co-Chair.

“Business travel is roaring back, and travelers are looking for efficient and innovative tools to help them move around the world faster. Given that many individuals who ultimately establish businesses in the UAE enter initially as visitors, having the ability to access the powerful combination of a global platform and compliance management technology is a tremendous benefit for new and existing clients in the region,” said Brendan Ryan, Nomadic CEO.

With the addition of Nomadic’s capabilities in the region, clients can take advantage of a flexible, transparent, and multi-faceted immigration solution that is underpinned by technology and addresses the unique market demands of the UAE and the broader Middle East.

“With the UAE and other regional business hubs continuing to position themselves as leading destinations for global talent, entrepreneurs and remote workers, we are thrilled to offer a solution that can be customized for corporate clients as well as individuals,” added Murtaza Khan, Fragomen’s Regional Managing Partner for the Middle East and Africa.
