In which country do I have to legalise a power of attorney?

Question: #Hilda, under which circumstances should I have my POA legalized in the Netherlands? And under which circumstances should I have my POA legalized in the UAE?
Answer: in general: when you (or your company) are based in the Netherlands, your power of attorney has to be legalized in the Netherlands.
When you are based in the UAE, your power of attorney has to be legalized in the UAE. But as a foreigner you can go visit the courts in the UAE to have a UAE POA legalized as well, as long as it is a personal POA.
