Dubai residents told to get ID card by end-May

The Emirates Identity Authority (Eida) has urged Dubai residents to renew their cards by end-May. Those looking to register new ones need to stick to the same time frame given.

According to Eida, it is mandatory for all – including those under-15 years of age, nationals and residents -- to register before the deadline, failing which they will be charged a penalty of Dh20 per day, up to a maximum of Dh1,000.

However, exception will be given to children whose parents have residence visa up to November or December this year. They can apply for the Emirates ID, when they renew their visa. They can go in at one-time and finish the entire process, instead of repeating it just two months later.

The fees for nationals are Dh100 for 5 years, plus Dh70 for typing fee and other charges, and for expats, it is Dh100 for every year, plus Dh70 for typing and other charges.

The children need not be present while registering for Emirates ID, and the process can be completed by the parent, after going to a typing centre with a coloured passport photograph of the child (with a white background) and the original passport .

The Abu Dhabi Education Council had earlier announced in the local media that presenting a valid ID card or receipt of the registration/renewal is a must for completing the registration of national and expatriate students for kindergarten to grade 12 for the academic year 2012-2013.

The council added that this would enable the setting up of an electronic file for each student at the Council’s schools, helping parents monitor their child’s schooling progress.

UAE children below 15 must register with Eida before October

The Emirates Identity Authority (Eida) has urged UAE nationals and residents to register their children, aged below 15 years, before October 1, 2012, or incur fines.

However, exception will be given to children whose parents have residence visa up to November or December this year. “They can apply for the Emirates ID, when they renew their visa,” elaborated Diyaa Abdul Al, adding, “This is done to ease the burden on the residents. They can go in at one-time and finish the entire process, instead of repeating it just two months later.”
