All You Need to Know

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has drastically changed the economy. While the temporary prohibition of face-to-face transactions has ensured the safety of employees and clients, it has had an effect on the progress of various industries that rely on the services of notaries.

To counter these delays, the Dubai government has implemented an ambitious initiative of providing e-notary services. Thanks to these technological advancements, people can now easily access government services without having to leave their homes.

The paperless strategy was put in place through the use of online video and voice calling platforms like Zoom and Botim.

The e-notary service consists mainly of the Dubai Court’s notary office contacting the document’s attestor through video conference, confirming the principal’s identity, and to obtain a complete understanding of the document’s contents. All procedures and transactions will be done online, and once the payment is complete, the document will be delivered to the recipient’s location.

The following notary services can be conducted remotely: 

legal consultation with attorneys, attestations of various kinds of records and contracts, declarations, partnerships, sales, signature authentication, and other notary-related concerns.

There are available service centers authorized by the Dubai Courts, which can be of assistance for private companies and public offices. However, the process of utilizing these services varies depending on what notary office the client opts to have legal affairs with, and the cost is dependent on which services are required. 

This concept of delivering remote services to the citizens of Dubai will assist in maintaining service continuity and provides an easy process that can be done from the comfort of your home during these challenging times.
