As per the immigration rules of the United Arab Emirates, students who have a Student Visa with the University are required to have a valid Emirates ID card. The Emirates ID card is applied for along with the Student Visa.
Please be aware that the release of the student’s Emirates ID can take some time and students are advised to keep a copy of their Emirates ID Registration Form to track their card. The registration form will be provided to students by the Visa Office.
Students also need to be aware that the Student Visa cannot be renewed or cancelled without their Emirates ID card. In the event that the card is lost, students are advised to visit any Emirates ID Centre to obtain a ‘Person Search Certificate’ to confirm that they did hold an Emirates ID card. This certificate will then need to be submitted to the Visa Office, along with the other required documents, to renew or cancel the Student Visa.
