What is Emirates ID card

The Emirates ID card is an electronic means of identification that EIDA undertakes to issue for all population of U.A.E. It is mandatory for each national or expatriate person above 15 years old.

Coupled with sophisticated technological features, EmiratesID card is a safe and fine means for identification of persons and verification of their identities. It contains an ID number that links every individual to his/her own personal and biological lifetime data. The number in question serves as a reference for the respective individual in his/her identity-proved transactions with government bodies and some private organizations.

It is expected that the ID card would, later,replace all currently applicable other identification means such as labor permit, health card,driving license, etc
