EMIRATES ID REPLACES RESIDENCY VISAS IN PASSPORTS

Following the announcement of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security, the Emirates ID will serve as a proof of UAE residency, effective 11 April 2022.

From now onwards, passports will no longer be stamped with pink stickers and as such, you will not need to submit them to RAKEZ for residence visa related services such as stamping, renewal or amendment.
