Dubai: Processing paperwork anywhere in the world in cases of death, claiming inheritance and repatriation are daunting tasks. But more so in the UAE where there are almost 200 nationalities and a convergence of different religions. The result? The lack of a unified rule in getting paperwork done in some cases. Sharia applies to all Muslims while some different sets of rules apply to some nationalities with a different religion.
