There are two options for obtaining a power of attorney required for, e.g. the sale or acquisition of real estate, a donation or inheritance in Belgium:
- You ask your Belgian notary to e-mail a draft of power of attorney to the following address of the Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs, firstname.lastname@example.org. After that, the Embassy in Tokyo will contact you as soon as possible. Some data will be verified, some documents will have to be submitted. Only then a date for the signature of the deed can be convened.
- You sign a power of attorney before a Japanese notary. You will then have to obtain the necessary legalization and translation (to Dutch, French or German) of that power of attorney.
