Abu Dhabi: On Monday (16), the UAE stopped issuing passports to expatriates. The Emirates ID will be the place where you can apply for your visa. The Federal Authority of Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security has announced that all Emirates, except Dubai, will cease special Emirates ID renewal services. For applications for renewal or issuance of residency or ID, unified form services will be used. As an alternative to proofing residency, the Emirates ID card is now available to UAE residents.
All the information is included in the new Emirates ID card that was issued to foreigners who are residing in UAE. Many people have already received visas to the Emirates AD. On the 11th of Iowa, the Iowa Act was in force. Instead of sticking a sticker stating residency details on a passport, all information is stored in an Emirates ID. Because of the short waiting time to connect the visa and Emirates ID, people claim that they receive the Emirates AD quickly.
For a visa or Emirates ID, you don’t have to go through multiple procedures. You can complete the entire procedure in one application. The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security has also stated that visa stamping is possible without a passport. This will make it easier and faster to get residency documents. As long as the Emirates ID contains information about resident visa status, it will be accepted for proof. This decision was made by the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security. Residents will no longer be able to obtain old residency stickers through the Authority’s smart application.
The Authority has all the technical infrastructure to get the details of the person’s residence through the printed form. This can then be requested through the individual’s accounts via the Authority Smart App or Website. The app will make it easy to access information about accommodation. Holders of valid residency visas may also be allowed to enter the country from outside the country. They can verify their identity using the Passport Reader, which is available on all airlines’ platforms. Emirates ID and passport numbers can be used to verify residency.
Emirates released a new version last year of its ID. A soft copy of the ID will be sent to the user when the card is issued, or when they submit a renewal request. The main body of the Emirates ID card can be viewed to view personal and professional information. Other information is also included on the card that cannot be read.
