The UAE Digital government has affirmed that UAE nationals and residents are not allowed to drive a vehicle abroad without an International Driving Permit.
If no change has occurred in the wife’s surname, the person concerned must visit an ICP affiliated customer service centre and bring the necessary documents to update the data in the ID card and in the Population Register Programme, the ICP said.
The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Security Ports (ICA) announced the suspension of the separate Emirates ID issuance/renewal services for all categories of residents except Dubai, effective from Monday, May 16, 2022.
Applying for updating the mobile phone data and address necessitates the owner of the ID card to be present in the country, the ICP said, adding that the application is not accepted if the owner is outside the country.
First, if anyone loses his/her ID card, must visit the nearest ICP Customer Happiness Centre and report the incident, so the stolen or lost card will be deactivated immediately. Then, ask ICP for ID number confirmation or a copy of the lost ID, in case he/she does not have one.
