Get an Instant General Power Of Attorney with MyPOA

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal agreement between an individual or a company. General power of attorney authorizes one person or company to share its powers with another to act on their behalf. The person who authorizes is called the principal, doner, or grantor, and the one who is being authorized is called the attorney, donee, agent, or grantee. POA can be made for several private, business, financial, real estate, and legal affairs.

The age of the grantor is set to be over 21 years with a mentally stable mind. Foreign business owners who are authorized in another country must translate their documents into Arabic before being legalized in the UAE. MyPOA can handle such formalities for you to use a foreign POA in the Emirates.

It is mandatory for a grantor to sign in all powers and authorize a legal representative in the concerning affairs. Any wrongdoing associated with general POA or irrevocable signing of POA will be treated as fraud and will be prosecuted in a court of law. The grantor is allowed to cancel the POA anytime. Once the assigned task is completed or the grantor is deceased, the document becomes invalid.
