A Power of Attorney (also known as a POA) signed in the United States will have to be attested before they can be used in the United Arab Emirates. Attestation involves several steps including notarization, authentication by the Secretary of State and the apostille by the US Department of State, and then subsequent consular attestation by the UAE Embassy and attestation by UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Attestation is sometimes referred to as legalisation.

If you’re wondering how you can attest your Power of Attorney or any other document to be used in UAE whilst you’re in the USA, then you have come to the right place.

We here at POA.ae will professionally accomplish this process for you including drafting your POA, attestation by all relevant authorities in the USA and the UAE  until your document is ready to use in the UAE.

How POA.ae can help you? 

Whether you need a document attested from overseas for use in the UAE or vice versa, POA.ae can manage the whole attestation process so you don’t have to visit numerous authorities and embassies in different countries to get your documents legalized. We can even arrange to have your documents collected from, and delivered to, anywhere within or outside the UAE.
