Things You Need To Know About Vehicle Power Of Attorney In UAE
What is a Vehicle Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney for Vehicle allows you to authorize another person to handle transactions related to your car. For instance, you can appoint someone to sell, buy, renew registration, or export your vehicle and sign documents on your behalf when you cannot be present.
When do you need a Vehicle Power of Attorney?
Power of Attorney for Vehicle could be an ideal solution, if you are relocating from UAE leaving your car behind or if you are already abroad and can not travel to UAE to sell your car or export it to your home country.
Using the POA, you can appoint your friend, relative, colleague, or anyone you trust to handle the transactions related to your vehicle in your absence such as selling, exporting, managing, renewing the registration or even paying fines of your vehicle.
It is always better to sign the POA when you are still in the UAE, as it is faster and costs less. If you have already left the UAE and want to issue a POA for your vehicle then such POA needs to be attested, which we will discuss later in details.
What is the process of making a POA for Vehicle in the UAE?
First of all, you need to get your Power of Attorney drafted. You can get it drafted at typing centres or by lawyers or you can order from POA.ae online. It is important to ensure that your POA is drafted by a professional that understands and precisely conveys the powers you want to grant. This approach will minimize the risk of POA being misused by your agent or rejection from concerned government entities at a later stage.
After your POA has been drafted and tailored to the specifics of your situation, it will need to be notarized at one of the Notary Public offices. For notarization, a Power of Attorney must be primarily in Arabic, or with official translation from any other language into Arabic.
After the notarization, the POA is valid and legal to use.
What is the process of making a POA for Vehicle from abroad?
In case you are outside of UAE, do not worry, you can still issue a Power of Attorney for your vehicle from abroad. However, the process involves more steps.
Again, the first step is to get your Power of Attorney drafted. Since you are outside the UAE, you do not have the option to go to typing centres to get your POA typed. You can either hire a lawyer (which can be lengthy and costly) or you can conveniently order from POA.ae online. It is important to ensure that your POA is drafted by someone who is familiar with UAE rules and regulations.
The process of making a Power of Attorney for UAE from overseas might seem a bit more complicated task in comparison to when you do it within the UAE, but it is an absolutely doable task. It involves following steps:
- Notarization by a notary or a lawyer or a solicitor (depends on the country)
- Attestation at a state level (applicable for some countries only)
- Attestation by a ministry or department of foreign affairs
- Attestation by the UAE Embassy or Consulate in the country of singing
- Attestation by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in UAE
- Attestation by the Ministry of Justice (for some instances)
After the attestation process, the POA is valid and legal to use.
If you are not sure on how to do the attestation in your country of signing or simply have no time to follow the process, POA.ae can assist you with the whole process of POA attestation from abroad including Australia, Canada, India, Pakistan, UK and USA.
Once the POA is legalized and in place, your agent can now represent you in relation to your vehicle. He can renew the registration, sell, or export it, based on the powers you have granted to your agent in the POA.
How can POA.ae help you?
POA.ae can assist you with the entire process of granting a Power of Attorney including POA drafting by experts and full attestation both in your country of signing and in the UAE until your Power of Attorney is valid to use in the UAE.
Attesting a simple document on your own can be a rather long and complicated process, especially, if you have not done it before. If you’re at a loss as to how you can start the process, give us a call on +971 4 455 8783 or WhatsApp us at +971 55 886 4969 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
