How to Renew Emirates ID Online in Dubai

All residents of the UAE know how crucial it is to have a valid Emirates ID card on hand, at all times. If your ID is close to expiring or has already expired, it is important to renew your Emirates ID. UAE nationals can apply for Emirates renewal six to one month prior to the expiration date.

How to apply for Emirates ID renewal?

The steps for renewing a Dubai Emirates ID are listed below and are pretty simple for UAE nationals.

Step 1: Register and submit the form for renewing your Emirates ID.

The first step in renewing an Emirates ID is to acquire all the necessary paperwork (which is stated below) and go to one of the three service centers indicated below. The Emirates ID renewal process can be started via the smart applications; however, it cannot currently be completed altogether online.

Step 2: Pay the fees

The next step is to pay the Emirates ID renewal fees after the necessary paperwork has been completed and submitted. The cost of renewing an Emirates ID varies depending on the center you choose and the duration of the ID's validity.

Step 3: Confirm your Biometrics

Once you've paid the UAE Emirates ID renewal fees, you've already made some progress. Applicants will receive an SMS with the application status upon payment, letting them know. Sometimes it may be necessary to collect biometric data from candidates over the age of 15. Having their pictures and fingerprints taken at any authorized Preventative Medicine Center will help with this.

Step 4: Collect the Renewed Emirates ID

Collecting your Emirates ID is the last step in renewing it. The ID card is ready for pickup at a post office of the applicant's choice, and Empost will notify them through SMS.

That completes the process of renewing your Emirates ID. While renewing the UAE ID card may appear simple, it's crucial to have all the necessary paperwork available. To assist you in getting your affairs in order, we have created a list of necessary documents.
