Whether you’re a first-time renewer or a seasoned expat, the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security (ICP) ensures a straightforward process for renewing your Emirates ID.
The renewal period spans 30 days from the expiry, after which late fines will be incurred.
Renewing your Emirates ID is a breeze with multiple application channels. You can utilize the ICP website and ICP App (available on the App Store, Google Play, and Huawei) or opt for an accredited typing center.
A visit to an ICP service center may be necessary for those requiring biometric details.
Timing for Renewal:
Residence visa holders in the UAE can initiate the renewal process only when their residence visa is renewed or reissued, ensuring a synchronized approach to both renewals.
Step-by-Step Renewal Process:
Step 1: Gather the Necessary Documents
Ensure you have the following documents in order:
- Current Emirates ID
- Passport (original and a copy)
- Valid residency visa
- Passport-sized photographs (4.5 x 3.5 cm) with a white background
- Completed renewal application form (available online or at authorized typing centers)
Step 2: Visit an Authorized Typing Center
Head to any authorized typing center to commence the renewal process. A knowledgeable team will guide you through the process, including:
- Biometric Data Collection: Fingerprinting and a photograph for biometric verification
- Payment: Settle the Dh370 renewal fee for the two-year validity
Step 3: Receive Your New Emirates ID
Once the above steps are completed, the authorities will process your renewal request. You will be informed via SMS or email when your new Emirates ID is ready for collection.
- Collection: Retrieve your new Emirates ID from the same typing center or Emirates Post office, depending on your chosen delivery method.
- Verification: Thoroughly review the information on the card. Report any discrepancies promptly for resolution.
By following these simple steps, residents can seamlessly navigate the Emirates ID renewal process, ensuring compliance and accuracy in their identification documentation.
