VARA means Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority, and it’s a Dubai government agency that oversees the activities of digital assets providers, regulates the sector and issues the VASP (Virtual Asset Service Provider) license.

The process begins with a consultation with our team. Afterwards, clients get a list of documents they need to provide, along with guidance on how to secure the documents they may not currently possess
