As the United Arab Emirates announced last year the national photo ID card will be linked to residence visa. Application for the id card will be filed during PMC (Preventive Medicine Center) for medical tests. Temporary residents can visit authorised typing centre to fill out the application form and pay the fee, complete the visa medical test at a PMC and then visit the Emirates ID registration centre to complete the registration process. Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA) announced yesterday that Western region of Abu Dhabi will lead the project making the link effective on Sunday. The measure has been already tested in Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.
