Making a Will in Dubai - A Guide for Expats

There are several options available for making just will in Dubai. There are several ways to get an agent to write it, do it yourself, register it in Dubai, or even make a will through video conferencing. This article will cover the most important steps involved in each. We’ll also discuss how much will-writing services in Dubai cost.

Getting an agent to make a will in Dubai:

While making a will without an agent is possible, this is a very time-consuming process that is best left to a professional. An agent will guide you step-by-step through the process and ensure that all your documents are properly processed. You can get in touch with a legal consultant for more information. These professionals can help you with various legal matters, including drafting wills.

Cost of registering a will in Dubai:

In the UAE, it is now possible to register a will for non-Muslims with assets in the country and family members. The registration process can take place in person or via video conferencing. The testator must be a permanent UAE resident or be on a visit visa. The new office of the DIFC Wills & Probate Registry in Dubai offers flexible legal options and assistance for non-Muslim families.

The cost of registering a will in Dubai depends on the location of the will, the type of will, and the extent of coverage. WPR Full Will costs Dh10, 000 while a Mirror Will costs Dh15, 000. A Mirror Will mirrors the terms of the primary will and protects the surviving spouse if the surviving spouse dies without a will. You can choose to pay the registration fee in installments, and in some cases, partner banks will offer this service to their clients.

Getting a will drafted by yourself:

If you’re a non-Muslim ex-pat living in the UAE, you can draft your own will. A UAE specialist will review this and then submitted to the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry and the Dubai Courts. However, if you’re unsure about what you’re doing, you should seek legal advice. While UAE law does not require a local will writer to draft your will, you should ensure the document is legally correct. Then, check with your family, friends, and colleagues to see if the document is appropriate.
