The Importance and Benefits of Dubai National ID Card
Those visiting the country and expatriates from the UAE must carry the Dubai National Identity Card. The Emirates ID Card is an electronic identification card issued by the Emirates Identity Authority or EIDA Registration. It contains an electronic chip that stores vital information about the cardholder such as name, date of birth, nationality, marital status, photograph, fingerprint data, electronic signature, etc. EIDA makes the Dubai National ID mandatory to access government services as several government departments have made the Emirates ID mandatory to use their services. Some benefits include when UAE nationals can use the Emirates ID as a travel document to cross borders within GCC countries.
The EIDA registration procedure to obtain a Dubai National ID card is very simple. You must complete the application form, which can be done online through the EIDA website or by visiting one of the authorized typing centers. Once the form is submitted, you will be called to receive your biometrics. You will receive an SMS on your nominated mobile number informing you of the date, time and location of the Emirates ID registration center you need to visit for this purpose. On the day of your visit to the registration center, you will need to bring your original passport. Residents must carry an original passport and residence or entry visa. All candidates must carry the registration forms.
Typing Centers will charge a fee of AED 30 to complete and submit the form. EIDA will charge AED 100 for the issuance and renewal of an ID card for UAE nationals and GCC nationals for five years and AED 100 for residents for each year of residence.
