This step marks an encouraging initiative to introduce technology to improve the civilized status of the residents of UAE. The new passport will have all the modern security and technological requirements to prove the personal identities.
In this article, we are going to discuss this new passport scheme with the help of our best immigration lawyers of UAE.
Highlights of new scheme
In the opinion of our best immigration lawyers of UAE, this new passport initiative is a part of ‘Emirati passports and national ID card project’ that was introduced last year. The project was conceived with an objective to provide quality services in the identification of personal identity in line with the best international standard.
It is pointed out by our best lawyers of Dubai that this project will enhance flexibility in working of various institutions that will facilitate a smooth and hassle-free travel free experience. The new version of passport will have unprecedented technical specifications to curb the incidents of forgery and other such wanted incidents. Unlike the regular use of paper, the name of the holder will be printed using the polycarbonate on the passport. Further, the new passport will be easily processed on the ports owing to its 3-dimensional tangible elements.
Our best lawyers of Dubai have highlighted that this new passport will enhance security and safety at international travel points that will not only strengthen the diplomatic position of UAE but will also make it one of the most powerful passports of the world.
What is the fate of old passports?
It is important to clarify that passports already in operation are perfectly valid and holders can use them until they expire. The application for renewal can be filed at the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security. The new passport will be considered an extension of the previous one without any change in the prescribed fees.
The new passport is an important step to enhance the security and safety to curb the wanted incidents, such as fraud and forgery. Before making your application for this new passport, it is important to consult with one of our best immigration lawyers in the UAE.
