UAE:? National Identity Cards for children under 15 years of age has been made mandatory.
Gulf Today daily reports that Emirates Identity Authority (Eida) has confirmed that ID cards will henceforth be mandatory for children under 15, apart from them being registered in the population register.
Until now children only had to be registered in the population register. ID cards were not a necessity. However, children will not be required to be present in person for the registration.
Eida will shortly restructure the procedures of registration in the population register and issuance of ID cards for kids at the designated typing centres.
