Emirates ID Renewal Online

The Emirates ID is an identity card that plays a vital role in many ways for all UAE residents, including locals and foreigners.

Foreigners are eligible for the application and receiving of an Emirates ID once they go through the process of applying for and receiving a valid business license and UAE Resident Visa.

Emirates ID Renewal In A Nutshell

The Emirates ID renewal is the process of renewing your existing or expired Emirates ID so you can continue your stay and activities as an official resident of the United Arab Emirates.

A certain time frame has been given to avoid Emirates ID fines. So, if you renew an expired ID card 30 days after card expiration, late fines of AED 20 per day will apply, with a maximum of AED 1,000 (one thousand) if the grace period is crossed.

An SMS notification will also be shared by the relevant authority responsible for the Emirates ID matters, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC). The renewal application will require in-person submission at an accredited typing centre or online at the FAIC website.

There may be a need to visit one of FAIC’s service centers or preventive medical centres to submit your biometric information if asked.
