How To Get Your Emirates ID card
Step 1: Fill in an eform at any authorised typing centre or online.* UAE citizens and GCC nationals pay Dh100 for five years, others pay Dh100 for each year remaining on their visa. Additionally there is a Dh70 typing centre fee.
UAE nationals need a valid passport and family book. GCC nationals need a valid passport and UAE residence document. Other residents need valid passport and a residence or entry visa. Children under 15 also need a colour photo.
A list of typing centres is at www.eida.gov.ae/en/process-and-fees/registration-plan.aspx. You don’t have to attend in person.
Step 2: You’ll receive a text message giving you a time and place for an appointment to register. Follow the instructions.
Step 3: After registering, you will receive a text giving you a time and place to pick up your ID. You need to take a photocopy of your passport.
