A valid Emirates ID card is mandatory for all citizens and residents of the UAE, any delay in obtaining or renewing an ID card will incur a fine.

According to authorities, residents and citizens can apply to change or update any details related to an existing and valid ID card through the ICP website or its smart application.

There are no documents required for making changes, and the service fee is Dh50.

The move is to allow the FAIC to update the data in the ID card and the Population Registration System, the UAE digital government said on its website. This applies to Emirates ID cards issued to nationals and expatriate residents.

The ICP said the ID data must be updated in the case of marriage and there are changes in the wife's last name (adopting a maiden name) for some nationalities. But if there is no change, the data in the ID card and the population registry must be updated.
