The UAE's Ministry of Justice has achieved a new milestone in the digital transformation of government services.

Around 95 per cent of federal court cases were handled remotely in the first quarter of 2023, and all marriage services were completed digitally.

Meanwhile, 99 percent of notary public services were conducted using video communication and blockchain technologies during the same period.

This achievement aligns with the UAE’s digital agenda and 2025 Digital Government Strategy.

The ministry developed an innovative digital system, which allowed the remote completion of marriage services in the first quarter of this year, facilitating users’ dealings and reducing paperwork.

It also introduced a system that can issue powers of attorney in less than 10 minutes without any human intervention.

The first phase of the system only covered lawyers’ powers of attorney, but it has now been extended to other types of powers of attorney, such as those for cars, stocks, real estate, disputes, licensing and cases.

Abdullah bin Sultan bin Awad Al Nuaimi, Minister of Justice, said that this achievement underscores the ministry’s keenness to provide a wide range of e-services to save customers time and enhance their user experience.
