Overseas Health Insurance News: UAE ID cards must be kept up-to-date

Expatriates living in the United Arab Emirates should be aware that they must keep their identity cards up-to-date should any of their personal information change.

This is the message being put out by the Emirates Identity Authority (Eida), which states that if surnames are changed through marriage, then this must be updated within a month of the event.

Further to this, it is also important that any change in address or designation is also noted.

The cards can be updated easily and without any charge at registration centres or electronic booths set up by Eida.

Expats are also required to rectify any mistakes on their cards, such as incorrect spellings or numbers that do not correspond with where they actually live.

It is enshrined in federal law that everyone residing in the country is registered with the authority.
