A power of attorney involves two parties. One that is giving the power and the one whom the power is being given to. Documents of both parties are required to draft and finalise a Dubai POA.
Additional documents may be required depending on the nature of power of attorney.
Starting from the drafting of the Powers of attorney to the notarization, JustPOA provides end-to-end services in the UAE.
A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document through which you designate another person to act on your behalf. The document authorizes the second person to make either a limited or broader set of decisions. The second person is obligated to act and take decisions strictly as per the terms of the power of attorney and keeping in mind the best interest of the authorising party.
A person may need a power of attorney in Dubai and in UAE in the event he / she requires someone to handle their affairs in their absence. POA can be used either to accomplish a single act or to carry out a host of activities. Depending on the requirements, a Dubai POA can assign powers for either a limited or an infinite time.
Generally, you may require a power of attorney in these scenarios:
In general, the nature of the powers that can be assigned through a POA depends on the type of the power of attorney. Below, we have the types of POAs and the corresponding transferable powers:
The first step is to identify in your mind what you seek to achieve through a Dubai power of attorney. This would involve picking out the task that needs to be done and how that task should be carried out. The task can be anything under the sun. Some of the examples include selling a property on your behalf, setting, or running a company for you, purchasing or registering a vehicle on your behalf etc. You can even pinpoint the exact way in which you wish the duties are carried out by the second person. Our experts at JustPOA can help you with the same.
An agent is a person who is authorised in a Dubai POA to carry out certain activities on your behalf. The agent must at least be twenty-one (21) years old. You can even appoint multiple agents by way of a single power of attorney. Since the agent is responsible to carry out the act, it is very important the agent is chosen carefully and wisely. You can appoint anyone as an agent who is willing to act on your behalf. However, it is always a benefit if the agent is either a close friend or a relative and has carried out similar activities in the past.
There are multiple types of power of attorneys. It is imperative to select a power of attorney that is the right fit for you. The type of the power of attorney in Dubai that you select should ideally depend on the powers that you wish to transfer through the POA. A property POA is used to buy, sell or rent the property. A vehicle POA is executed if you require your agent to purchase, vend or register a vehicle. A company POA is drafted if you wish another person to run the affairs of a company on your behalf. Our experts here at Just POA can help you easily pick a Dubai POA that is suitable for you.
A power of attorney in UAE must be carefully drafted so that the exact powers that you wish to transfer are precisely recorded. It must be ensured that the POA should not miss or omit any power that you wish to assign, the POA should not transfer powers that are excessive and unwarranted, the language of the POA should reflect the true intent of parties, and the POA draft is easily understandable by a third-party executor.
A power of attorney that is to be executed in the UAE must be bilingual. The English language draft of the Dubai power of attorney must be translated to Arabic by a certified legal translator approved by the Ministry of Justice of UAE to ensure that the Dubai POA is accurately translated. If you are an Arabic speaking person then you can choose to have the POA drafted in Arabic. It is essential that that power of attorney is bilingual (English in Arabic) since most of the government authorities within UAE conduct business in Arabic language.
In gist, the notarization process depends solely on if you are in United Arab Emirates or outside. You can sign on the final original POA before a notary public in any emirate if you are within UAE. Upon signing, the notary will stamp the POA and register it in his/her records. If you are outside of UAE, then you can sign the POA before a notary public in your own country. Depending on the country, the POA will be attested by Ministry of Foreign Affairs in UAE or the consulate of the country where the POA will be used. The power of attorney should be properly signed so that it is recognized by the executing and government authorities. Our experts can help you with the signing formalities to ensure that your Dubai POA is valid and acceptable.
Once we have prepared the draft of your power of attorney, based on your location, the following process for the signing will have to be followed:
If you reside in the UAE, a Dubai power of attorney can be signed before a notary public in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman or Um Al Quwain. Regardless of the place of signing within the UAE, a power of attorney remains valid throughout the UAE.
We provide end-to-end assistance on preparing and notarizing the power of attorney in the UAE.
If you reside outside the UAE, a Dubai power of attorney can be signed before a notary public in the country of your residence. Once signed, attestations by the following government departments will be required before it can be used in the UAE:
1. Country of your Residence
2. United Arab Emirates
Our fee for assistance on the UAE attestations is AED 899. This includes the government fee. However, if the document is treated as commercial document by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the government fee of AED 2,000 shall apply in addition.
If you reside in the UAE, a general power of attorney can be signed before a notary public in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman or Um Al Quwain. Depending upon the country where the power of attorney will be used, attestations by the following government departments will be required:
If the power of attorney is intended to be signed in the UAE and used in India, the draft can be prepared by us and you will need to sign the draft at the IVS Global offices.
In case the principal of the POA is unable to travel, then the POA can be notarized online by using the BOTIM mobile application. This form of remote notarization can be carried out by sending an email to the designated email ID of the notary public of the Dubai courts. The following details should be included in the email:
Upon receiving the email, the notary public will hold a video call via BOTIM app to verify the identity of the principal.
Once the POA is approved the courts fees can be paid upon collection of the original notarized POA. The approved and stamped POA can be collected by the agent residing in Dubai / UAE from the Dubai notary public office.
A Dubai power of attorney should align with the law of the United Arab Emirates. That is why it is crucial that the POA is optimally not only tailored to address your specific needs but also is executable as per the UAE law. Below are the few quick pointers for preparing a legally valid Dubai POA:
The present global situation is a significant reminder that life is uncertain and living in a country away from your own can come with its own challenges. In these circumstances, having granted a Dubai power of attorney can allow some peace of mind to you if your agent is able to carry out your tasks in your absence. For this specific reason power of attorney in Dubai have become an important tool in our everyday life. Now, more than ever, it has become important to understand the components of a Dubai power of attorney. A power of attorney in Dubai has these elements:
The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department notarizes and issues POAs in Abu Dhabi. While an in-person/physical notarization is still possible, e-notarization is the more preferred option these days. Though non-UAE residents can make powers of attorney, the ADJD only notarizes POAs for UAE residents (i.e. individuals holding a valid Emirates ID).The process of e-notarization for powers of attorney in Abu Dhabi is quite similar to the procedure adopted by the Dubai Courts Notary Public. To complete the process, the principal must join an online meeting with an officer at the ADJD. Usually, the meeting takes place through the Cisco WebEx application. Once the verification through the video conference is complete, a notarized power of attorney is issued with an added page that confirms that the document has been notarized.
