Can UAE residents travel internationally while their Emirates ID renewal is in progress?

by Dubaiforum

Residents in the UAE who are in the process of renewing their Emirates ID card may be wondering if they can still travel abroad. The good news is that as long as your residency visa is valid, you are able to travel outside the UAE even if your Emirates ID renewal is still pending.

It is advisable to carry a copy of your UAE residency ID card application form while traveling, as this can be shown to immigration authorities if they request to see your resident ID card. This will serve as proof that you have applied for the renewal of your Emirates ID.

Additionally, it is recommended to show the online status of your UAE resident card application, as the UAE government provides an application tracking facility for residents to monitor the progress of their ID card renewal.

Overall, as long as your residency visa is valid and you have proof of your Emirates ID renewal application, you should not encounter any issues traveling abroad while the renewal process is still ongoing.
