The Federal Authority for Identity, Customs, Citizenship and Ports Security of UAE has denied a viral social media post regarding Emirates ID. About a warning issued on Thursday morning, the authority rejected the information in the post, which stated that Gulf citizens could get Emirates ID cards only by paying a fee.
However, it only showed blurred images of the viral post.
The ICP stated, ” The population registry to get the Emirates ID card requires fulfilling the requirements.”
He added that getting the card is subject to terms and conditions following the regulatory decisions issued in this regard, and these have “not undergone any changes.”
The authority requested the residents to ” ignore the previously mentioned rumor and to strive for the correct information from the verified channels of the authority and official government sources.”
