last week i asked dubai RTA to personalize my dh 20 Nol card and they had asked me for a copy of National Id card....

You are buying a big off course they will ask you for an id card as the registration has to be done with government of dubai ....

however Only for dubai deadline is 30th June 2012.... but they have already started asking for it...

You definitely don`t need a National ID card to either buy or sell a car, I bought one a couple of months back and I sold one this week and i`ve never even applied to get an ID card.
They keep putting the deadline back so sometimes I wonder if it will ever be used for anything.

Thanks guys...it would seem like the rule that's true for one might not be the same for another; given the erratic nature of implementation in the UAE!

Good luck!

Also bought a car 2 weeks ago and wasn't asked for it. No-one even seems to accept it as valid ID.

If you don't like the answer this week, ask again next week, the answer could well have changed...

We're big on plastic cards in the UAE!
My company's accountant just asked for my labour card number so he can attempt to transfer my salary to the new account I have tried to open at the DIB...

I don't have a labour card (never heard of them) ha ha! turns out I'm supposed to have one and everyone is running around like headless chooks trying to get me yet another card to carry in my wallet
