The Emirates ID Authority is the entity responsible for issuing Emirates ID cards and has a wide network of Emirates ID centers across the country.

Emirates ID is the mandatory document that all residents of UAE – both citizens and expats – must have. This means that Emirates ID Authority and centers have a huge role to play regarding such identity cards.

Whether you need to renew an expired ID, get new ID, or replace a lost, stolen, or damaged card, you can do it from an Emirates ID office. There are ways in which UAE nationals and residents can apply for an ID online.

However, if you ever need additional help, visiting an Emirates ID office will be very useful. In this Dbd guide, you will be able to find Emirates ID biometrics centers near you.
