WAM ABU DHABI, 4th August, 2013 (WAM) — The Emirates Identity Authority has announced that it has approved 131 typing centers in Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah to use the new e-form it has recently launched. The new e-form allows Emiratis and residents to access all services related to issuing a new ID card, renewal of an expired card or replacement of a lost or damaged card.
Emirates ID indicated that starting August 1st, 2013, the Authority will reject old e-forms filled at any typing center in the mentioned emirates. New e-forms filled in any typing center that’s not approved will also be rejected.
The Authority has urged all customers to make sure the typing centers they use to fill their applications for a new ID card or renewal of an expired card are approved by the Authority in order to have their applications processed.
Emirates ID noted that applicants can also fill their applications online using the form through its website and save the 30 Dirham fees they pay to the typing center.
