Power of Attorney in Dubai and UAE

Power of Attorney has become an integral part of personal and corporate documentation across the UAE. The document is frequently used by most people authorizing someone else to carry on transactions in the UAE.

There are two (2) types of powers of attorney that are commonly used in the UAE:

Personal Power of Attorney

There are two (2) types of powers of attorney within this category:

(a) General Power of Attorney

This power of attorney is issued by one individual (Principal) in favour of another individual (Attorney). The Principals in Dubai and across the UAE typically provide a general power of attorney to either their spouses or friends to carry out transactions which they are unable to carry out themselves. General powers of attorney are also used for purchasing or managing real estate in the UAE, business set up or to purchase any other items in the UAE.

(b) Special Power of Attorney

A special power of attorney is used in cases where the Principal requires the Attorney to either sell any specific item (such as real estate, vehicles or shares in a company) or carry out any other transaction with limited scope. Special powers of attorney for the sale of real estate, vehicles and shares in companies are the most common POAs used in the UAE.

Corporate Power of Attorney

There are two (2) types of powers of attorney within this category:

(a) Company Power of Attorney

This POA is similar to a general power of attorney, but in this case, it is issued by the shareholder(s) of a company in favour an individual with broad powers to manage the affairs of the company. This POA has all necessary powers for the Attorney to act on behalf the company.

(b) Special Power of Attorney

This POA is issued by the shareholder(s) in favour of the Attorney with very specific and limited power to carry out one (1) or more transactions. The transactions to be carried out under this power of attorney are specifically listed in the POA to ensure that the scope of the document does not allow the Attorney to carry out any other transactions.

Process of Signing Power of Attorney in UAE

The process of signing a power of attorney in the UAE can be divided in the following simple steps:

1. Preparation of draft

As a first step, a draft of the power of attorney is prepared keeping in view the specific requirements of the person writing the power of attorney (Principal). The draft is typically prepared in either English language (for non-Arabic speakers) or Arabic language (for Arabic speakers).

2. Arabic translation

If the draft has been prepared in English language, it needs to be translated into Arabic language by a translator duly licensed by the UAE Ministry of Justice. Once the translation is carried out, the translator is required to provide three (3) print outs of the power of attorney and affix his stamp on each set of the document for signing by the Principal.

If the draft was prepared in Arabic language only, the Principal can simply print three (3) copies of the draft for signatures.

3. Signing

The powers of attorney in the UAE are signed before and registered with a Notary Public in each of the Emirates. The Principal is required to visit the nearest Notary Public in the relevant Emirate and carry out the registration which usually takes about 20-30 minutes.

In some Emirates such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the Notary Public carries out the registration of POAs through video conferencing. The relevant process needs to be complied with for the registration of a POA through this method.

Process of Signing Power of Attorney outside UAE

A power of attorney that is required to be used in the UAE can also be signed outside the UAE by the Principal. However, after the preparation of the draft, the following process needs to be followed for such power of attorney to be valid in the UAE:

1. Signing before Notary Public

As the first step, the power of attorney is required to be signed before a Notary Public in the country of residence of the Principal. This process is sometimes referred to as the notarization of the POA.

2. Legalization

After the notarization, the Principal is required to attest the document at the ministry of foreign affairs of the country of his residence. Depending upon the jurisdiction, the role of the ministry of foreign affairs may be performed by another government department. This process is referred to as legalization or apostille.

3. Attestation by the UAE Embassy

As the last process of the legalization in the country of origin, the document is required to be stamped by the UAE Embassy or the Consulate. After this step, the document is sent to the UAE for the completion of the legalization process.

4. Attestation by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Once the document is received in the UAE, it is required to be stamped by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

5. Attestation by the UAE Ministry of Justice

As the last step in the legalization process, the POA is stamped by the UAE Ministry of Justice to confirm that the Arabic translation is carried out by a translator duly licensed by the Ministry. If the translation of the POA is carried out after the attestation by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the translation is required to be carried out on the letterhead of the translator along with his stamp. The original POA must be stapled with the translation.
