The authorities utilized social media platforms to communicate the alert, informing customers that they have the option to update their IDs by following a provided link.
Residents in the UAE are being urged by Dubai Courts to update their Emirates ID at the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security. The call to action was shared on Twitter, where customers were informed that they can conveniently update their IDs using the provided link: https://icp.gov.ae/service/@UAEICP. The purpose behind updating the Emirates IDs is to facilitate effective communication from Dubai Courts during legal proceedings if necessary.
Earlier this year, the Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security Authority (ICP) in the UAE introduced a redesigned Emirates ID registration form. The new form incorporates several key features aligned with the authority's visual identity. Notable changes include placing the applicant's photo in the top left corner and including a QR code on the top right for tracking the application. The form also provides a dedicated section explaining the next steps in the process. Additionally, the company name and address for card delivery are mentioned at the bottom left. Two QR codes have been added for accessing the Customer Voice Gateway to register complaints with the ICP and for rescheduling fingerprint appointments.
It's worth mentioning that at the beginning of this year, the ICP confirmed increased fees for issuing Emirates IDs and visas. The revised costs apply to all ICP services, with the Emirates ID fee raised to Dh370 from Dh270, and the one-month visit visa fee increased to Dh370 from Dh270, as confirmed by a representative.
