Most Free Zones in Dubai require some capital amount before they actually issue your license. The setup procedure usually goes as follows:
1. You provide your passport for security checkup
2. You have to deposit money to the bank for 3-5 or sometimes 20 days (until the setup is finished)
3. You get your license
Then you can use your money for whatever purpose, however in the end of the year you will have to do audit and prove that your capital did not decrease (it should at least remain the same).
