Hello,

You cannot legalise a Will but you may apply for a Grant of Representation/Probate if you are named as an executor in the Will.

See here how to do so:

It normally takes a few months to obtain Grant of Probate so if you only have 2 weeks, I am afraid you do not have enough time and should seek an extension or some other solution from the Egyptians.

May I help further?
