In implementation of the second theme of the new registration plan emanating from the Emirates Identity Authority’s strategy 2010-2013, the Emirates Identity Authority will start activating the service related to linking the ID registration with the residence issuance and renewal procedures in Ras Al Khaimah from Tuesday, March 1, 2011.
In a press release, Mr. Abdul Aziz Al Maamari, Director of Public Relations and Marketing at Emirates Identity Authority, said the third stage of the gradual expansion with respect to activating the service of linking ID registration with the residence issuance and renewal procedures would start as soon as the service is processed in Ras Al Khaimah.
The ID Registration Centre in Ras Al Khaimah would start registering residents for ID cards after their completion of preventive medicine procedures, he added.
Al Maamari explained that the registration form sealed with the ID seal which proves registration for ID card would be a major part of the documents required to be provided by all Ras Al Khaimah residents as soon as the residence and issuance procedures are initiated in the General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs – Ras Al Khaimah.
As for the procedures for obtaining ID cards for the residents who are in the process of applying for residence issuance or renewal in Ras Al Khaimah, Al Maamari explained that the first step for them is to visit an authorized typing office in Ras Al Khaimah where the ID registration form would be processed and the due fees would be collected against a receipt.
He pointed out that after completing the necessary procedures at the typing offices, the applicants would go to the Ras Al Khaimah Preventive Medicine Center for medical examination and subsequently to the Ras Al Khaimah ID Registration Center.
It is worthwhile that the Emirates Identity Authority’s activation of the theme of linking registration for ID cards with residence issuance and renewal procedures through the registration centers annexed or adjacent to preventive medicine centers started in Umm Al Quwain as a first stage and in Fujairah as a second stage for implementing the second theme of the Emirates Identity Authority’s new registration plan.
