The Emirates Identity Authority, Eida, will expedite ID registration Wednesday with 20 registration devices made available at the Abu Dhabi Traffic Department, the Gulf News reported Wednesday.
Abdul Aziz Al Muammari, director of the public relations at Eida, said additional staff will be deployed to handle the many applicants, with buses to transport applicants from busy registration sites, to those with less applicants.
The id card will be mandatory for access to services, with governmental departments and banks requiring the ID card in order to transact business, reminds Eida deputy head, Ali Al Khouri.
