The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) achieved a significant breakthrough by conducting its first-ever English notary transaction using digital technology through the English Notary Services Bureau. This pioneering move is groundbreaking in the Middle East.

Recently, His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, has issued Decision No. 38 of 2023 to establish an English-language Notary Services Bureau in Abu Dhabi.  

His Excellency Saeed Al-Abri, Undersecretary of the ADJD, highlighted the importance of this accomplishment in line with the forward-thinking leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The establishment of the English Notary Services Bureau emphasises Abu Dhabi's competitiveness and its appeal to foreign investments.

Further, the English Notary Services Bureau enables remote notary transactions in English, overcoming language barriers for non-Arabic speakers and offering easy access to notarization and authentication services for foreign clients. The bureau accommodates diverse needs, including the notarization of company contracts, board decisions, meeting minutes, powers of attorney, and declarations in English.

This historic development marks the introduction of the first-ever English-language judicial services bureau in the Middle East. It will enhance the efficiency of legal documentation processes and elevate the emirate's global competitiveness.
