Overview and Description

A Power of Attorney allows an individual to legally act on behalf of another individual in a variety of legal and financial situations. There are different types of POAs: General Power of Attorney, which grants broad powers; Special Power of Attorney, which grants specific authority for specified situations or tasks. In the UAE, Power of Attorney forms have to be prepared in Arabic or if executed in another language requires Arabic translation and has to be signed before the Notary Public in the UAE, to be legally valid.

General Power of Attorney
