Effective from July 1, 2019, the Courts' Wills Service Centre also confirmed that existing wills registered with the Courts can be amended free-of-charge until August 31, 2019, to include UAE-wide assets and those outside the UAE.

With almost eight million expatriates residing in the UAE, the government of Dubai and the DIFC Courts recognized the need for an innovative legal solution for non-Muslims that provides peace of mind for residents and investors, as well as enhance Dubai and the UAE's attractiveness as a destination for expatriate talent and investment," said, Zaki Bin Azmi, Chief Justice, Chief Registrar.

"Recognising the increased demand, we have now amended our rules to expand the remit of this public service to assets across all the emirates of the UAE and beyond," he added.
