What is a POA?

With a Power of Attorney, an individual (the Principal) may assign the legal authority to another person (the Agent). Given such responsibility is serious, it must be established and authenticated by a notary public office – part of the courts’ system ensuring documents used in business or legal transactions are legitimate. There exist two main categories when referring to POAs:
A General Power of Attorney grants expansive authority to its Agent, aptly demonstrated by the title. This type of POA empowers the Agent to make any decision or act in lieu of the Principal and is typically a necessity for these scenarios:
When a Special Power of Attorney (also known as a Specific POA) is granted, it allows the Agent to carry out solely the activities specified in it. The following transactions require a Special POA:

Crafting a Power of Attorney: Your First Step

Careful consideration must be taken when drafting the POA to ensure that it accurately reflects the parties intent. An imprecisely drafted document can result in costly delays or even rejection by third-party organizations and Notary Publics alike—wasting precious time and resources. Therefore, a properly crafted POA is essential for the efficient processing of legal documents.

Consequently, it is strongly suggested that the parties enlist a legal expert to provide them with an accurate pre-made template or one customized for their needs and explain any ensuing rights and obligations. To prevent issues down the line, all names and numbers should be cautiously inserted without error.

Understanding the Necessary Steps and Criteria for Obtaining an Online Power of Attorney (POA)

To begin the online POA process, make sure you possess a BOTIM account and have downloaded the corresponding application on your device; be it a computer, tablet, or phone ( Afterward, applicants will join in a virtual meeting with the notary public through the BOTIM app.

To receive a court notary service, applicants must submit an application via email to the Court’s notary public at and include all required information as well as any applicable supporting documents.

All documents must be submitted in PDF format, and each page should include a notarized declaration from the Principal at the footer.
“I, the undersigned, declare with my full capacity and through video communication, using BOTIM, my consent on all that is stated in this application and I sign accordingly.”
After carefully reviewing all the paperwork and application, the notary public will contact the applicant via BOTIM on a pre-arranged date in order to verify documents and information, ask for additional documents, amend details or simply inform that the POA has been approved and completed.

The applicant will be contacted via email and phone with the location of a notary public office, where he/she or their agent can make a payment for the standard En/Ar POA. Even though there is an option to pay online and receive documents by courier, this service is still unavailable in Dubai at present. However, they will have access to original copies from the notary after paying fees.

The Power of Attorney must be submitted in both Arabic and English, authorized by an accredited translator with their stamp included. If the applicant requires a single-language POA to be issued, all documents should be provided only in Arabic. For use abroad, legalization and attestation from the relevant country’s embassy or consulate along with the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs are necessary. When further translation into any other language is required for international use, legal authentication from the UAE Justice Ministry will also have to occur.

What Other Documents Can be Legally Notarized Online?

Alongside the Power of Attorney, a notary public offers online services to:

This service guarantees that these important documents are officially verified before they can be used or applied.

Private notaries offer a number of additional services for an extra fee, including job offers and employment contracts, mortgage documents, and much more. You have the option to book an appointment at their office or arrange for them to come your way.
