Remote Notarization of Power of Attorneys in Dubai
In line with efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Dubai Notary Public offices have started offering remote notarization which can be done completely online without leaving your home. Initially, during the national sterilization program, everyone was able to utilize this service and notarize their documents remotely. However, once the situation has been normalized, the Dubai Notary Public offices have re-opened their doors to walk-in clients and thus online notarization has become available only for specific category of people.
Following categories can apply for remote notarization in Dubai:
- People above 60 years old
- Pregnant women
- People of determination
This means that people who fall under any of the above categories do not have to be physically present and visit the Dubai Courts Notary Public offices to sign and notarize their documents. The remote notarization process shall be done using online channels such as email and verification through BOTIM.
The remote services that will be provided by the Notary Public in Dubai include the following:
- Power of Attorney notarization;
- Legal Notice notarization;
- Civil Companies’ memorandum of association and its addenda notarization; and
- Local Agency Service Agreement notarization.
How to Get Started?
The first step is to get your Power of Attorney drafted. Without a doubt, this is the most crucial step. It is important to ensure that your POA is drafted clearly and professionally and precisely conveys your situation. This approach will minimize the risk of POA rejection from third parties and/or government entities at a later stage and will save your time and money. POA.ae offers POA drafting services and you can order your POA online from the comfort of your home. Once your POA is drafted and approved by you, will send you a final version so that you can proceed with the remote notarization.
The remote notarization shall be started by sending in an email to the designated email address of the Dubai Courts Notary Public. The application email shall mention the Principal’s full name, mobile number, BOTIM number and full address along with the attachments of the below:
- PDF file for the signed POA;
- Copy of the valid Emirates ID or valid passport;
- Copy of the Trade License if POA is signed on behalf of a company;
- Copy of the existing POA if it will be signed by virtue of another POA.
- Other documents depending on the type of your POA (e.g. title deed copy, vehicle registration card copy).
It is important to note that the application will be approved by identity verification, capacities and awareness of the POA which will be done through BOTIM so Principal shall be subscribed to the application.
Once approved, you will be receiving an email containing the fees and its’ link for payment, which shall be settled by using a credit or debit card. Then you can expect to receive the notarized POA within one to two weeks after the payment.
