Quote from email:
With reference to your mail, you need to do the following

You need to visit Etisalat office with the following documents
Web Hosting Application form
The Domain Name registration.
A copy of a power of attorney with a specimen signature and a photocopy of the passport of the authorised signatory.
A copy of a valid Trade Licence.
A copy of the owner's or local sponsor's passport.
Don't think they want international customers?! I'll keep looking!!!
Etisalat currently monopolizes the UAE market so to them it makes no difference whether you're interested or not. Eventually if you want hosting locally it will come to them whether it be direct or through a channel partner.
