The Dubai International Financial Centre – Wills and Probate Registry (“WPR”) is a dedicated entity established for the sole purpose of handling probate related matters. WPR allows non-Muslims to register a Will. A DIFC Will is a Will registered with the WPR and is limited to any assets located in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah only. A DIFC Will ensures that Islamic law shall not be considered in the distribution of assets of a non-Muslim.
The DIFC is a common-law jurisdiction, the principle of testamentary disposition is followed under the WPR rules however this is subject to a challenge brought by an heir. Upon death of the testator, the appointed executor under a DIFC Will is able to apply for a grant of probate from the DIFC Court, which once issued is enforceable in Dubai & RAK without the need for further action through the local Courts in Dubai or Ras Al Khaimah.
