In the event of changes to residency information, Emirates Id replacement is needed

A new update for Emirates ID holders was announced by the UAE Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security (UAEICP). From now on, all changes to residency information will trigger a request for replacement of the Emirates ID.

The process of modifying details was simplified to enhance convenience for residents of the UAE. Information can be updated through the authority's user-friendly digital platforms, which include an app and an official website. You will be able to log in with a UAE pass or username credentials. Then, you need to choose the service, put in all the new information and proceed to make the payment.The Emirates ID should be updated when there are changes in:

  • Personal data
  • Professional titles
  • Passport data
  • Nationality (when acquiring new citizenship)

If you wish to make these changes offline, you will need to visit a Customer Happiness Centre or approved typing office. You will need to provide the following documents:

  • Copy of passport
  • Coloured personal photograph
  • Copy of both sides of the Emirates ID
  • Sponsor's signed data amendment request

The service costs AED 200 (USD 55), and includes AED 100 (USD 27) for smart services, AED 50 (USD 14) for the e-service and federal authorities fees and AED 50 (USD 14) for the application processing fee.

If the documents are incomplete or incorrect, you will get an application rejection notice within 30 days. If the application is returned three times due to the same reasons, you will also be rejected.Only refunds of the issuance fees and applicable financial guarantees are possible if an application gets rejected. The refund will be issued to a credit card within six months of the application date. The other option is to get a refund via check or bank transfer in the UAE within five years.
