As per the UAE immigration rules, students who are under the university visa are required to have a valid Emirates ID card. This will be applied together with your visa application.
Please note that the release of your emirates ID card might take a while hence we kindly advise you to keep a copy of your Emirates ID Registration Form to easily track the update of your card. The registration form will be provided to you by Middlesex Visa Office.
In addition, student visas cannot be renewed nor cancelled without the Emirates ID card. In the event that the Emirates ID card is lost, you are advised to visit any Emirates ID Center to get a PERSON SEARCH CERTIFICATE to confirm that you held an Emirates ID card. Please submit the Person Search Certificate along with your documents to Middlesex Visa Office before renewing or cancelling your visa.
