The General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) provides a 24-hour passport renewal service at the airports in Dubai and Abu Dhabi,
according to the UAE’s Digital Government. UAE residents can readily obtain an Emirati passport by one of the five methods listed by the Digital Government. These include registering at the airports in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, as well as using the Residency and Foreigners Affairs/Citizenship Section, the Nationality and Residence e-portal, and the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security (ICP) passport service.
The new passport can only be used for up to five years, according to the Digital Government, and the citizen must file for a new one by submitting the original or copies of three documents, including a family book, an ID, and a recent photo. Additionally, they are required to give the officials their old passport. UAE citizens can get in touch with the GDRFA in their various emirates if they have any questions about Emirati passports in Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, or Umm Al Quwain. For any general inquiries, they can also phone the ICP call centre at (600) 522-2222. They can call the Amer hotline at 8005111 for questions in Dubai.
