At Gitex 2023, a technology expo being hosted at Dubai World Trade Centre from Monday, October 16 to Friday, October 20, the Federal Authority of Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICP) presented a brand new service that they name the "Biometric Self-Enrollment Station." This service will be available starting on Monday, October 16.
The fact that you do not have to make an appointment or travel to a central location in order to complete the procedure is among the most significant advantages offered by the kiosk service. According to Saleh Al Hammadi, Head of the Population Register Department at ICP, according to Gulf News, "you can do it yourself at a kiosk, which will be accessible 24/7."
The fact that you do not have to make an appointment or travel to a central location in order to complete the procedure is among the most significant advantages of the kiosk service. You will have the option to do it yourself at a kiosk, which will be open around the clock.
"Everyone, especially the People of Determination, will find this to be helpful because of how simple it is to utilize. "The device is equipped with motion sensors and a hydraulic system that allows it to be adjusted to the height of the individual in order to scan their fingerprints and take their photo," he said further.
The ICP estimates that the service will not be available until 2024 at the earliest.
Step one is to fill out the application online before going to a kiosk to submit it.
"First, you have to complete the application form for renewing or issuing an Emirates ID or passport online, and then you need to go to a kiosk," Al Hammadi explained.
You are able to submit your application by using either the 'UAEICP' mobile app or the smart services platform, which can be found at smartservices.icp.gov.ae. After that step is finished, you will be given a registration form that contains a Quick Response (QR) code as well as the locations of the kiosks. You have the option, when you are at the kiosk, of either scanning this QR code or scanning your passport.
The second step is to snap a photo of yourself and enter your height.
The information about you will subsequently be retrieved from the ICP system by the kiosk. The next thing that has to be done is entering your height in centimeters.
"Don't worry if you input the wrong height or if you don't know it at all; either is OK. "The kiosk has built-in sensors that can determine your height," he explained. "It's very convenient."
After that, the camera will automatically adjust its settings to account for your height before taking a shot that is the appropriate size for a passport.
Step 3: Register your personal biometric information.
After that, you should begin the process of biometrics. On-screen instructions will be shown to you at this time.
"If you are over the age of 15 and you are renewing your Emirates ID, or if you are new to the UAE and you are applying for the Emirates ID for the first time, you would be required to register your biometrics. Additionally, even if your biometrics are already stored in the system, we could ask you to provide them once more if we feel they are not distinct enough or for some other reason to ensure your safety, he explained.
Step 4: Type in your signature and send the information to ICP.
After that, use the digital pen to input your e-signature, and then submit your personal information.
"Once everything is done, your details will be verified by ICP, and you will get your Emirates ID delivered to your address," he added. "Once everything is done, your details will be verified by ICP."
* When will the kiosks be installed? * The ICP intends to deploy the kiosks as soon as possible and position them in locations that are easily accessible to the general public.
"We plan to put these machines in malls and airports and other public places where people can find them easily," Al Hammadi added. "We also plan to put them in other public places."
