UAE: ID cancelled applications toll rises to 56,000

During the month of Ramadan, the most important Muslim holiday number of cancelled national ID card application rose to a new record of 56 thousand. The application gets automatically cancelled after missing 2 consecutive appointments. During the month of Ramadan 40,000 applicants were given and extra 3rd chance. Number of cancellations in this pool was vely low.
As we wrote recently the new identification cards ar mandatory and not posessing one or holding an expired card will result in fines starting October this year.
Application appointment can be changed using automated call center although there are many complaints on system functionality and high number of missed appointments proves that the system has room for improvement. Also the card link to many services like transportation and health care remains still in the world of promises which discurages citizens from getting the new document promptly.
