The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAI) announced a new system of electronic application that allows companies to use FAI services for issuing or renewing Emirates Identity (EID) cards electronically for its staff. The new service saves on issuing and renewal fees for the companies, while also reducing the possibility of mistakes and accelerating the issuance process. To avail the services of the new system, the number of employees of one company, or the group of companies belonging to the same sponsor, shall not be less than 100 employees. The company must also be licensed by the responsible authorities and should register with the FAI to avail the new system ID issuance system, with the necessary documents, as well as sign a contract.
The new system aims to change 80% of all services provided by the authority for smart and electronic services in 2018, using cutting-edge technologies to make its clients happier and allows companies to renew all EIDs for its staff together, saving time and making it easier for the FAI to deliver the cards to the companies. Training courses to explain the benefits of the new system will be arranged for the company representatives to promote awareness.
