The Digital government of the UAE has recently announced that the residents and citizens are required to notify the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICP) within 30 days of any changes made to their Emirates Identity Card data.
On its website, the UAE digital government said this initiative will allow the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) to effectively update the data on ID cards and the Population Registration System. This will be applied to all Emirates ID card holders both nationals and expatriates in the UAE.
ICP further states that the Emirates ID data must be updated when the wife’s last name changes (adopting her maiden name) after marriage.
All citizens and residents must have valid Emirates ID cards. Fines will be imposed for delays in obtaining or renewing your Emirates ID card.
According to authorities, it is possible to update the details of your valid ID card via the ICP website www.icp.gov.ae or its smart app.
• Access to the smart services system (digital identity or user name).
• Search for the service – Update your Emirates ID
• Fill in the application data, where applicable
• Pay the service fee
Note – The owner of the ID card must be present in the country. The application is not accepted if it is outside the country.
UAE residents intending to cancel their UAE residence visa for the purpose of leaving the country permanently or changing jobs are required to turn over their ID cards to the relevant General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs.
Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship will receive the returned ID card from General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs.
