The UAE’s Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has started issuing a new advanced version of the Emirates ID.

Till it’s printed, you can just use the e-version of your ID on the ICA UAE Smart app, which is available for free on ios and Android stores.

This e-version can be used for all government services as it is as valid as the physical one.

The ICA has coordinated with all the authorities concerned, and service and business providers to offer services based on the e-Emirates ID.

On Monday, the ICA took to Twitter to detail the three steps to get an e-card:

>> Download the ICA app (ICA UAE Smart)

>> Scan the QR code to create the electronic card in your ‘document wallet’ in the app.

> Use the electronic version of the identity card for all services
