Expatriates in UAE to get new identity cards
Name change designed to distinguish Emirati and expatriate identity cards
Warm welcome to new ID card.
Imtiaz Peera, Ajman, United Arab Emirates
it was posted recently on Gulf News that, the EID will serve as an e-wallet by year 2015 in coordination with Central Bank. my suggestion is why cant they just unify the cards such as (Labour card, driving license, identification card, medical card and ofcourse what's in process which is the e-wallet) , since all the issuing agencies are under 1 roof that is Dubai Government, then they can come up with a system, for e.g. each of these cards has expiration dates, so whenever for example the DL is expiring it will just notify the possessor to do the needful. A special unique # to be made for each person, enter it into the system and options will show whether which card needs to be accessed.

I have soo many cards in my wallet (labour card, Emirates ID, Health Card, UAE DL, Insurance, registration Card) I wouldnt mind, if I would just have one card for everything together at least labour card, emirates id and Health card should be one

This all process just a waste of time to expatriates, we do have residence visas on our passport. ID cards should only be meant for citizens only?

why not the blood Group on the ID CARDS ?
