Guide to Power of Attorney Attestation from UK to Use in UAE
Are you currently in the United Kingdom but have unaccomplished matter in the UAE? Whether you need to sell your car, rent your property out, or manage your business, a Power of Attorney is an ideal solution to get things done without personal presence. If you’re wondering how to appoint someone to complete your tasks and how you can attest your Power of Attorney to be used in UAE whilst you’re in the UK, then you have come to the right place.
Attestation requires you to visit several government offices and also calls for following up whether your document is moving or stuck somewhere. We here at POA.ae will professionally accomplish this process for you: starting from your POA drafting until your document is ready to use in the UAE.
Step by Step Legalization Process:
- Notarization – First step is to get your POA notarized at a notary public office or by a solicitor in the UK. For our client’s convenience, we have an affiliate notary office in the UK who can accommodate you for the notarization. You may still have your POA notarized by any licensed notary or solicitor in any part of the UK after which you may courier the notarized POA to our London office where we can proceed to Step 2.
- Apostille by Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) – This is the part of the legalization process where it confirms the signature of the UK official who conducted the certification. It confirms the authenticity of the signature, seal, or stamp on the attached UK public document. Authentication Certificate will be attached.
- Legalization by the UAE Embassy in London – This attestation confirms that document has been legalized correctly, following the standard procedure. Official sticker of UAE Embassy will be placed.
- Attestation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) UAE – As the last and final step, this is where the document is fully & completely verified. Another UAE official sticker will be placed. Once this step is done, your POA is ready & legal to use, unless the following step is applicable.
- Attestation by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) of UAE (if applicable) – If your POA is going to be used in the court, Arabic translation and attestation by the Ministry of Justice would be required too.
