How to change or update personal details on your Emirates ID
Do you need to update your photograph on your Emirates ID? Or perhaps your designation has changed recently, and you would like it to reflect on your Emirates ID.
Updating the details on your Emirates ID is possible but you need to visit an immigration authority centre in person to complete the process. First, you need to modify data on your residence visa and then proceed to making any changes to the Emirates ID. This is because they are both linked and any details stated in the residence visa must be reflected on the Emirates ID.
If you have a visa issued by an Emirate other than Dubai, you will need to visit the GDRFA customer happiness centre in your Emirate. At the centre you can complete both the steps – updating your residence visa, and ultimately updating your Emirates ID.
