ICA rolls out a new generation of UAE Emirates ID

Emirates ID
The electronic version of the ID will be made available on the ICA UAE Smart app.

The UAE’s Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has started issuing a new advanced version of the Emirates ID.

The ICA called on ID applicants to use the e-version for all government services till their physical cards are printed. It is generated automatically. It features a QR code, which facilitates its reading for official purposes at government departments.

The e-version of the card is as valid as the physical one. The ICA said the e-version of the ID is part of its transition to a “new-generation of identity cards and passports”.

The authority has coordinated with all the authorities concerned; and service and business providers to offer services based on the e-Emirates ID.

New designs for Emirati passports and Emirates IDs were first announced in November last year after a Cabinet meeting chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
