Renew expired ID cards by October 31

Residents have until the end of this month to renew expired national ID cards.

According to a report in 'Al Khaleej', the deadline to renew expired ID cards is October 31. Residents will have a 30-day grace period from the date of expiry to renew their cards, the authority said.

Eida clarified that beginning January 1, 2012, a delay fee will be charged for those who renew their residence visa without registering for ID cards.

However, children under the age of 15 will be reprieved from paying fines for another year. They will be fined only beginning October 1, 2012.

Residents who possess receipts of registration will be exempt from paying fines provided they complete the application process within the valid period, Eida added.

The authority had earlier announced that residents who fail to renew ID cards one month after expiry will be fined Dh20 per day to a maximum of Dh1,000.
