In the Emirates ID, How Do You Change Your Mobile Number?

The Emirates ID contains all of the requisite details and can be used for a variety of purposes, including paying bills and registering cars, accessing government services etc.

When using any online service, the Emirates ID needs two-step authentication, which involves receiving a one-time password (OTP) on your phone.

The Emirates ID is the UAE citizens’ identification card or resident card; it can also be thought of as a personal account for anyone who lives in the UAE.

if you no longer have access to that UAE phone number?

Step 1: Fill in the Request Information

The first step is to go to the ICA Smart App  website and fill out all of the details the authority requires, which includes: 
Nationality: You must choose your country of origin from the dropdown menu.

EID Number: This also refers to the Emirates ID on the card’s front.

After you’ve entered all of the above data, you’ll need to choose a country from a dropdown menu and enter the number in the next sector.
Then you must enter your address details, which includes the area, full address, local building name, local flat number, and street.
This will complete the first stage of the procedure, allowing you to proceed to the next.

Step 2: Examine Your Application

If you want to change something, go to Edit and make the changes you want.

You can press to continue until you’re satisfied with all of the details you’ve entered.

It’s worth noting that you can make changes to the details after it’s been sent, but this can create delays in the process because you’ll have to contact the appropriate authorities and wait for a response.

Step 3: Make a Payment

This whole procedure is not free and needs payment because it takes the authorities a long time to obtain and validate all of the records.

Since the Emirates ID is also used to make financial transactions and is expected to eventually replace the Debit Card, authorities must take precautions to ensure that no scams are perpetrated from the ground up.

The cost of updating your mobile number on your Emirates ID is Dh 152.10, and the process can be completed online to save time.
Following payment, you will be redirected to the ICA website, where you will be informed that your application has been successfully forwarded.

What is ICA Approval in UAE and How to get it?

ICA approval is an important form of certification that is required to enter in UAE. It is also known as the UAE entry and exit certificate that is the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC). It is a travel record that is needed by ex-pats who have resided in UAE and UAE residents for a variety of reasons. Earlier it was required for all UAE residents, now travellers holding UAE residence visas need approval from the ICA to re-enter the country.

With new rules, UAE residents do not require ICA approval to return to the country from a foreign visit, while an ex-pat needs ICA approval from MOFA UAE along with a valid UAE national identity card (Emirates ID) to return to the country. ICA report is an important document that is needed when:

  • You are applying for an equivalency certificate in UAE on the Ministry of Education portal
  • You are planning to immigrate to a foreign country
  • You are required to submit a tax residency certificate or tax domicile certificate in your origin country as an ex-pat in UAE. ICA report is a mandatory document to secure a tax residency certificate from the Ministry of Finance in UAE.

A UAE entry and exit certificate mentions the record of travel history to and from the UAE. Every time someone visits a foreign country, he/she receives a visa stamp on their passport. This record is considered as the travel history of an individual mentioned in the ICA report approved by FAIC.

An ICA report contains:

  • Arrival & departure destinations
  • Passport number
  • Transaction type (entry or exit)
  • Transaction date (date of travel)
  • Port name and port type (Airport / Seaport)

You can apply for a UAE entry and exit certificate as:

  • Single Entry/ Exit Travel Report mentioning the most travel status
  • Detailed Entry/ Exit Travel Report with full travel history inside and outside the UAE.

You can also prefer to get a customized report for your travel history as per your movement report inside and outside the UAE. You can secure your ICA report from GDRFA (General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs) after approval from FAIC. To apply for your UAE entry-exit report, you will need to submit your passport copy and Emirates ID copy with your application. Getting an ICA report in UAE can cost around AED 200-300.

How to get ICA approval in UAE?

You can apply for a UAE entry and exit report on the ICA website on your own, but without proper knowledge and understanding of the process, you may receive a red signal from the authority. It’s better to consult with a professional agency for assistance during the process to get a green signal for approval to enter in UAE easily and quickly.
