Professional License

What is a professional license?

  • A professional license is given to an individual entrepreneur or a corporation to practice professional activities or services of any kind. For example, artisans, service providers, craftsmen, designers, and any career that relies on intellectual ability and talent.
  • Keep in mind that the owner of such enterprise should be owned by a single person and if it is owned by more than one individual then it is referred to as a civil corporation.
  • Foreign nationals are granted 100% ownership of business giving them the privilege of a sole proprietorship but there is one condition.
