5k UAE national ID cards undelivered

Out of 500,000 cards handed out by Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA) to the delivery couriers 50,000 were not delivered due to errors in address and invalid contact numbers. Current capacity of ID card production is 250,000 a day and it heavily outnumbers courier services abilities. The new national ID programs is designed to integrate social benefits access; future plans also include using the ID card for health benefits.
