ABU DHABI, 1st February, 2023 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has completed 251,098 digital notary public transactions during the year 2022, which is a qualitative leap in the area of digital proceedings, thus avoiding more than 502,000 visits to the ADJD’s headquarters, by carrying out all procedures remotely without the need for court users to appear in person at the headquarters of the ADJD.

In addition, up to 1,244,621 documents were issued in digital format instead of being printed as hard copies, with the possibility for applicants to obtain a digital copy at any time without the obligation to apply for a true copy of the original.

Yousef Saeed Alabri, Undersecretary of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, stressed the ADJD’s keenness to offer a pioneering and distinguished experience in completing judicial and legal transactions, and to benefit from the technical advances and AI-backed smart and fast services, in line with the directives of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, to keep pace with the new developments to deliver smart and innovative judicial and legal services.

The Judicial Department continues to update its technical platform for digital notarial services to enable the submission of applications through the Department’s website or via the Notary Public’s application, and to complete the transaction remotely via videoconference should it be necessary to conduct an interview with the applicants, without having to appear in person, Yousef Alabri said.

He added that the Judicial Department has managed to reach advanced stages in activating the electronic connection and data exchange system with a number of concerned authorities and strategic partners, which helps in carrying out various types of transactions submitted in a simple and convenient manner and with the least amount of attachments required in a shorter time and less effort, as well as supporting the transition to digital documents instead of printing, in line with international trends and the UAE government’s commitment to preserve the environment.
