Emirates identity card modified

(Dubai) – The Emirates Identity Authority (Eida) has added some more blank space in the data field on the backside of the identity card to widen the scope of the card and to add new data in future. This is part of the authority’s efforts to expand the scope of the use of the ID cards and activating it as the principal reference for the identification and authentication of individual identities, according to a senior official.
Shukri Al Braki, Director of Population Register at Eida, explained that the amendment would not require any involvement of the customers, nor will they have to replace their cards.
“The amendments involved minor changes in the fields that record date of birth, card number, validity, signature and the special note on card loss and the serial number for the electronic chip.”
