Resident ID Card (Emirates ID)
Always keep in mind that any document written in Arabic is the legally binding one; the English version isn’t. Therefore many institutions require that application forms are completed in Arabic. If you’re worried you can employ the services of a legal translator.
Many of the processes described in this section involve going to a typing centre. These are found all over the city, and are within or close to many of the government departments that require the use of one. Often the required application forms need to be collected from a typing centre, and the relevant department won’t accept a form that hasn’t been filled out by one. You will need to take along all the relevant documents and pay a fee.
Different centres are often authorised to do different processes, and it’s not clear cut finding out which one does what. You can usually find out by contacting the department you need to deal with (and sometimes on their website). Some processes enable you to bypass the applicable government department – the entire process can be undertaken at the typing centre.
