Register your DIFC Wills by video conferencing during COVID-19

DIFC Courts Wills Service (DIFC CWS) has introduced registration of all Wills through video conferencing during the COVID-19 crisis.

All appointments for Will registrations are booked through the DIFC CWS’s portal by selecting the video conferencing registration option.

An authorized officer shall review the Will with you on a video conference call. Once you confirm the contents of your Will, you can simply insert an electronic signature through your mobile device.

For the registration process to complete, you will require two (2) witnesses to sign on your Will simultaneously. These witnesses can join the same video conference from different locations and insert electronic signatures (through their mobile devices) on the link provided by the DIFC directly.

The witnesses should not be beneficiaries or guardians mentioned in your Will or spouses of beneficiaries, or guardians mentioned in your Will. The witnesses must be over the age of 21 years and must show their photographic ID during the video conferencing registration. You will also be required to present your passport or Emirates ID during the video conferencing call.

Once the Will is signed, it will become binding and you will be given the option to download your signed Will immediately.

Legal Inz ensures the smooth registration of DIFC Wills as per the above protocols.

Order your DIFC Wills today and secure the future of your loved ones.


Coverage of assets in the UAE and other countries in a DIFC Will

Effective as of 30 June 2019, DIFC Courts Wills Service has made landmark amendments to the DIFC Wills & Probate Registry Rules (the “Rules”) resulting in the following benefits for testators:

  1. DIFC Wills now automatically cover all moveable and immoveable assets throughout the United Arab Emirates.
  2. DIFC Wills may also cover movable and immoveable assets situated in other countries around the world, subject to legal advice.

Before this amendment, the Rules only permitted the testators to include the moveable and immoveable assets situated in the Emirates of Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah.

The amendment to the Rules has significantly extended the coverage offered by the DIFC Wills. However, if you wish to include your assets situated outside the United Arab Emirates in your DIFC Will, it may be possible to do so subject to our legal advice in relation to the enforcement of the DIFC Will in the relevant jurisdiction.


Three Considerations for DIFC Wills

Given the uncertainties involved around the types of Wills in the UAE, you should keep in mind the following three (3) important factors while deciding in favor of the registration of your Will with the DIFC Courts Wills Service (formerly known as ‘DIFC Wills Service Centre’):

1. No Will in the United Arab Emirates

In the absence of a Will, the UAE courts apply the Sharia Law to the distribution of the assets of all non-Muslims either living or having assets in the UAE. This means that your spouse, children and all other legal heirs will share your assets in accordance with the distribution mechanism devised by the Sharia Law. Your legal heirs may include your parents, brothers and sisters. The probate process may also be time consuming in the absence of a Will.

2. Non-DIFC Will in the United Arab Emirates

Non-DIFC Wills in the United Arab Emirates are signed before the Notary Public (Courts) in the United Arab Emirates. These Wills are registered in English and Arabic (bilingual formats). However, the probate process after death is carried out in Arabic language at the relevant court. If you do not speak Arabic, you may not feel confident in dealing with the probate process without professional assistance. This could potentially incur additional costs. The probate process for DIFC Wills is carried out at DIFC Courts in English language. There is no need for a professional assistance for the probate process carried out at DIFC Courts.

3. DIFC Will in the United Arab Emirates

DIFC Courts Will Service was established to protect the interests of non-Muslims having assets and/or living in the UAE. The registration of a Will with the DIFC Courts Will Service has the following benefits:

  1. The Will provides clarity in relation to the distribution of the assets, appointment of executors and guardians.
  2. DIFC WPR Rules provide a comprehensive legal framework on the registration of Wills.
  3. The process for obtaining probate order is quick, simple and cost-effective.

Types of DIFC Wills and what they include

DIFC Courts Wills Service (DIFC CWS) offers various types of Wills products for non-Muslims living or having assets in the United Arab Emirates. You should carefully consider the coverage provided by each document before proceeding with a document that is right for you:

Full Will

A DIFC Full Will is the most comprehensive document amongst all documents offered by DIFC CWS. It covers the following:

  • Distribution of all moveable and immoveable assets situated in the United Arab Emirates as per your wishes.
  • Option to distribute moveable and immoveable assets in jurisdictions outside the United Arab Emirates, subject to legal advice.
  • Appointment of guardians for minor children (below the age of 21 years), including permanent and interim/temporary guardians.
  • Appointment of executors and alternate executors.
  • Distribution of any gifts (such as cash or physical items) to any person.
  • Any other provisions to reflect your wishes.

The registration of a DIFC Full Will is carried out by visiting the offices of the DIFC CWS along with two (2) witnesses.

Guardianship Will

A DIFC Guardianship Will covers the appointment of guardians for minor children, including permanent and interim guardians. Interim guardians are typically appointed in cases where permanent guardians appointed in the Will reside outside the UAE and might take a few days to arrive in the UAE to take custody of the minor children.

The registration of a DIFC Guardianship Will is also carried out at the offices of the DIFC CWS in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

Property Will

A DIFC Property Will covers up to five (5) real estate properties (or a share such real estate properties) situated in the United Arab Emirates. There may be some restrictions in terms of choosing layers of alternate beneficiaries.

This document may be suitable for you if you are an overseas investor with investment in real estate property without any bank accounts in the United Arab Emirates. If you expect to make further investments of any type in future in the United Arab Emirates, you should consider having a DIFC Full Will.

The signing and registration of a DIFC Property Will can be carried out at the DIFC CWS offices or through virtual registration, in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

Financial Assets Will

A DIFC Financial Assets Will covers up to ten (10) separate single or joint bank or brokerage accounts (or a share in such accounts) registered/held with a bank or brokerage company in the United Arab Emirates. There may be some restrictions in terms of choosing layers of alternate beneficiaries in this Will.

If you either currently own or expect to own any other assets in future in the United Arab Emirates, you may consider having a DIFC Full Will.

The signing and registration of a DIFC Financial Assets Will can also be carried out by at the DIFC CWS offices or through virtual registration, in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

Business Owners Will

A DIFC Business Owners Will covers up to five (5) separate shareholdings in any company situated in the United Arab Emirates. There may be some restrictions in terms of choosing layers of alternate beneficiaries.

If you either currently own or expect to own any other assets in future in the United Arab Emirates, you may consider having a DIFC Full Will.

The signing and registration of a DIFC Business Owners Will can be carried out at the DIFC CWS offices or through virtual registration, in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

5 reasons for making DIFC Wills

Here are five (5) reasons why DIFC may be the most appropriate option for the registration of your Will in the UAE:

1. Transfer your assets as you wish

You can leave your moveable and immoveable assets in the UAE to anyone you like by registering your Will with the DIFC Courts Will Service(DIFC CWS). You can also appoint guardians for your children, give specific gifts of cash or items to anyone of your choice though your DIFC Will.

The DIFC Wills & Probate Registry Rules (the “Rules”) also permit the inclusion of assets situated anywhere in the world in a DIFC Will. This is, however, subject to obtaining our legal advice.

2. Available for non-Muslim residents and non-residents

All non-Muslim residents and non-residents over the age of 21 years are eligible to register their Wills with DIFC CWS.

3. Simple registration process

The registration process for DIFC Wills is extremely simple and secure. The signing process varies depending upon the type of document being signed as follows:

Full Will and Guardianship Will:

These Wills are signed at the offices of DIFC CWS in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

Property Will, Financial Assets Will and Business Owners Will:

These Wills can be signed either by visiting the offices of DIFC CWS or remotely through virtual registration in the presence of two (2) witnesses.

An appointment is required to be made in advance for the signing regardless of the type of Will being signed. Upon signing, the Wills are registered immediately.

This process significantly reduces the possibility of claims challenging the validity of Wills at the probate stage.

4. Clear legal mechanism

The Rules provide clear and unambiguous guidelines on writing Wills and the probate process after death of the testator. The Rules are based on the common law principles and legislation of other leading common law jurisdictions such as the UK, Singapore and Malaysia.

5. Short probate process

The process of probate under the Rules is fairly short and simple. DIFC Court is responsible for issuing probate grants/court orders for the distribution of estate as well as guardianship orders. The time-frame for the completion of probate process is expected to be around one (1) month.
