Dubai: national ID card mandatory when visiting DMV

The rule that every transaction at Dubai DMV has to be accompanied by national ID card is over a year old. It has not been strictly enforced though due to delays at EIDA centers making many residents unable to get new id card promptly. The policy is going to apply stricly without exceptions by mid 2012. Abu Dhabi reapplied similar policy just recenlty and only exception is a EIDA registration document proving that application for national identification card is being processed.
