The advisory reads, “As approved by the Government of India, like all other Embassies of India, the Embassy of India in Abu Dhabi, in cooperation with Ministry of Transport and Highways (MoRTH), will also w.e.f 15.02.2021 facilitate the re-issuance of International Driving Permit (IDP), to Indian nationals, which were originally issued by the relevant authorities in India.

On receipt of the application through the portal, the licensing authority (MoRTH), upon verification of the document shall courier the IDP, directly to the residential address of the applicant.”
