UAE Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security (ICP) will issue a new generation of the Emirati passports starting on September 1.
These passports are issued as part of the new generation of Emirati passports and national ID card project which was launched in June 2021.
“This project aims to enhance the flexibility of doing business related to individuals in various institutions of the UAE, in order to improve the quality of life and provide a travel experience that strengthens the leading position of the UAE,” Ali Muhammad Al Shamsi, Chairman of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security, said.
The new version of the Emirati Passport has technical characteristics, laser technologies and three-dimensional tangible elements and complex security specifications to restrict the attempts of forgery or falsification. It will also feature printing the identification page of its holder using the polycarbonate instead of paper.
The passport will be easily processed at the ports, and is characterised with high quality due to the usage of laser technologies and three-dimensional tangible elements.
