The Application can be submitted either through ICP's official website, "www.icp.gov.ae" or the official Mobile Application 'UAE ICP', which is available on App Store and Google Play Store.

Instead of waiting for two weeks, applications received through the Mobile Application will be renewed within a period of one to three working days. Applicants can also check the status of their visas and clarify their concerns via the chat feature linked to a customer service representative.

Secondly, select the service titled ‘Residence Permit and Emirates ID Renewal,’ review the data and pay the charges and submit the application. The applicants will receive a confirmation via SMS regarding the success of the operation and will receive the Emirates ID through the certified delivery company within a few days.
