The Emirates ID has a new look, as the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) announced the launch of a new and improved version of the Emirates ID card. This mandatory identity card for all UAE citizens and residents will now be upgraded with many additional features that will help tackle identity fraud and will also increase national and international confidence in travel documents. The improved Emirates ID will now be valid for more than ten years and can be read through the E-link system with the ICA. The card will also have a consolidated 3D photo which will be authenticated with the holder's date of birth. The card will cover more information about the citizen or resident and will also use advanced technology and non-touch data reading features.
