UAE: Immigration Bulletin – ID Cards Mandatory for Traffic Services

Expatriates working in government and semi-government organizations, must present ID card for drivers license renewal

By Immigration Specialist
December 9, 2011

uaeAll expatriates above the age of 15 living in Dubai must obtain an Emirates ID card by June 1, 2012.

Foreigners who have yet to arrange their cards are encouraged to apply for one at their earliest convenience, as various government offices will require a card for their services even prior to the June deadline.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai has confirmed that starting from December 1, 2011 expatriates working in government and semi-government organizations must present their Emirates ID cards in order to manage transactions for traffic related services such as processing or renewing a driving license, registering a vehicle, transferring its ownership, exporting cars and paying traffic related fines.

UAE nationals are already using their cards for traffic services as well as other government transactions since November 2009.
