A Power of Attorney document is used when you need to authorize another person to act on your behalf. The legalization of your Power of Attorney document is necessary if you will be using the document in Iraq.
The Power of Attorney document can be specific or general in nature. However, only Power of Attorney documents which are special private Power of Attorney, or related to your pension, can be processed in typical fashion:
- Notarization with a Canadian Notary Public
- Authentication at Global Affairs Canada
- Legalization at the Embassy of Iraq
Absolute General Power of Attorney and Special Power of Attorney documents related to Real Estate, must be processed differently. Those Power of Attorney documents must be signed and completed in person at the Embassy of Iraq.
If you need to prepare an Absolute General Power of Attorney or a Special Power of Attorney document related to Real Estate, you should contact the Embassy of Iraq for instructions on how to proceed.
