The process for appointing a Power of Attorney is very straight forward and we can guide you through this. In order to be valid, the Power of Attorney must be signed and notarised by a Notary Public before being legalised and attested by the UAE Embassy (or equivalent) in the country where the grantor is based.
We will prepare the Power of Attorney document here in Dubai as per the activity required and the requirements of the Dubai authorities. If you are in Dubai, we can have the Power of Attorney document prepared and attested in one morning at the Dubai Notary Public.
Alternatively, we can send the Power of Attorney document to you with instructions on legalisation in whatever country you are based. Once the Power of Attorney is legalised overseas, it will need to be couriered back to us to be attested at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here in Dubai.
(Eg) UK Legalisation process:
- POA preparation stage – we prepare the POA and send this to you for legalisation in the UK
- Notarisation stage – you sign the POA document in front of a Notary Public or Solicitor
- Legalisation stage – you send the original signed POA document to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to be certified/legalised
- Attestation stage – the POA will then need to be sent to the UAE Embassy in London to be attested before being couriered back to us to be attested at the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dubai
Once the attestations are completed, we will have the power to handle everything on your behalf so that you are not required to attend in person.
