UAE: Digital Power of Attorney Services Agreement Signed

Al Bayan, 23 October 2023: The UAE’s Justice Minister has signed a cooperation agreement with the Justice Ministry, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority and the Digital Government and the Supreme Council for Government Digital Transformation Committee.

The aim is to develop a digital power of attorney service to deliver government services that will allow citizens and residents to authorise others to conduct digital government transactions on their behalf quickly, securely and legally as well as in a way that preserves the rights of all parties.

The new government digital service will also be added to the UAE government’s digital capabilities. All government agencies will be able to provide digital agency service for their services on their websites and applications over the course of the next few months.

Those using this service can choose a specific government entity and a specific service provided by this entity and then submit a request to issue a special power of attorney for another person.
