I heard this from my friend who is working in HR department in a big company in internet city. but I think she also heard it from her colleagues, but this hasn't been confirmed yet because she hasn't been informed officially. but I'm a little bit worried now because if December is the deadline,i only have a week's time to apply the Emirates ID cards for more than 15 people in my company..headache..anybody has any idea about this??

Have a read over this

gulfnews : Q & A: Know your ID

Do I need to have a National Identity card by the end of 2010?

Ideally, yes. UAE residents (both Emiratis and expatriates above 15 years of age) must possess a National ID card by 2010-end to be able to perform transactions with government and certain private sector entities, though Emirates Identity Authority (Eida) officials now appear to be backing off from the plan to have every resident obtain the ID card by the year-end.

The official line is that all expats must have an ID card by 31st December, which is nothing new, or they will be fined...

But will it really happen? Haven't we been down this path before only to have it postponed again and again?

My wife works for a big multinational and they are applying now, on behalf of all staff and spouses. So it looks as though they are taking it seriously.

I called EIDA this morning, the operator told me that the deadline is 31st, December, but there is no document indicating that people will get fined if fail to have this ID card. If you are leaving the country soon, then no need to have this card at all...

I think that they actually be serious about the deadline this time (though I would so love to be wrong since I haven't bothered to apply for an ID yet). My colleague tried to buy a car this week and got told to get an ID card first! That was in Abu Dhabi and they are always quite eager to enforce the law but even I was shocked to hear that! Fingers crossed that I am so so wrong and that they end up moving the deadline again!
