The first ID certificate that an expatriate moving to the UAE should receive is the Emirates ID. This is a mandatory document, whether it is anything or anywhere. How do I check the status of my UAE ID? Once you have applied for the new Emirates ID or updated or replaced your existing card, follow these steps to obtain your Emirates ID status. EIDA (Emirate Identity Agency) updates cardholders from time to time by sending text messages to the designated mobile number on the application form.
- Visit the ICA website
- Click the search bar and find “Application Status” under the Quick Links category.
- Provide your application number or UAE ID number (for renewal/replacement)
Here, the applicant can track every detail of the card process. To maintain this process very transparently, EIDA provides real-time status of the application, such as “cards printed,” “cards distributed,” etc.
(Either) Applicants can visit the https://www.ica.gov.ae/en/services/e-services/id-card-status.aspx page and then perform step 3.
