Amendment to rules regarding DIFC Wills

The DIFC has announced changes to will registration rules for non-Muslims, which will now accommodate all resident and investor assets across the whole of the Emirates, and assets held outside the UAE which will be effective from 1 July 2019.

Those wishing to take advantage of this change will be able to amend existing wills registered with the courts free of charge until 31 August 2019. The Wills Service Centre is a joint initiative of the Government of Dubai and the DIFC Courts which gives non-Muslims living and investing in the UAE the option to pass on their assets and or appoint guardians for their children, in accordance with the instructions in their Will.
