The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security (ICA) has unveiled the introduction of a Family Data service, offering Emirati individuals and families an alternative to the current UAE Family Book system.

This initiative aims to streamline access to government services electronically. Scheduled to commence on May 13, the service will be accessible via individuals' personal accounts on the authority's website and smartphone application.

The new service is designed to enable Emiratis to seamlessly access all government services digitally, eliminating the need for traditional paper-based transactions. It replaces the current Family Book system.

ICA has confirmed that this service will extend to all family members through their respective electronic accounts on the authority's website and smartphone application, under the name Family Data.

Facilitating the electronic exchange of data among relevant government entities, the service ensures the availability of information necessary for obtaining various services.

All existing Family Book data will be migrated to the Family Data service, while passports will remain the primary identification for travel and movement outside the country.

The protocols for extracting, updating, or amending information within the Family Data service will align with those governing the Family Book system.
