The Smart Mission project enables customers, via facial recognition technology, to benefit from proactive consular services, and allows direct interactions without human interaction through 3D and hologram technologies. The project comprises several services that include return document issuance and authentication, as well as “To Whom It May Concern” certificates, among other consular services.

The Smart Mission project aligns with the UAE’s Year of Sustainability and supports relevant national strategies.
