UAE ID Card Info

The UAE ID card deadline has been brought forward to 31 December 2008 for all professional and graduate residents in the UAE working in private sector firms and their family members.

The UAE ID card will eventually eliminate the need to carry multiple cards like driving licenses, work permits, passports, e-gate cards etc. Until the UAE ID card actually replaces the need for an employer to obtain the employee a labour card, then the responsibility and associated cost for obtaining the UAE ID card lies with each individual resident of the UAE. This e-mail is intended to provide some help and advice on what to do.

How to apply for an ID card
