Dubai Notary Public update


Share

We have received a number of requests from clients wondering how to interact with the Dubai authorities during the Covid-19 lock-down.   

The Dubai Notary Public (Notary) has recently launched an online notarisation process as a measure to help mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on notarial services.
The Notary's services are now made available only through the online services channel for a limited number of documents which we understand include powers of attorney, legal notices and local service agent agreements, acknowledgments and Memoranda of Association (and addendums thereto) for civil companies.
 
The application (comprising the document to be notarised along with the supporting documents) will be sent to the Notary by email. Once the initial application is approved by the Notary, a video call (via BOTIM) is arranged to allow the Notary to verify the identity of the authorised signatory by checking their identification documents which will need to be held up to the screen.  Following the video call, the applicant (if also the authorised signatory) should sign the document to be notarised, pay the notarisation fees online then send the signed documents to the Notary via the approved courier service.
 
Once notarised, the original notarised document will be returned to the applicant's selected address by the approved courier service within two working days. Other fees the applicant is required to pay will include delivery fees.
 
The UAE authorities continue to be flexible and supportive of businesses and individuals wishing to go about their day-to-day business in these challenging times.
