Why all the pa­per­work when we have ID cards?

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

I’m cur­rently go­ing through my visa re­newal process and it struck me that we are still re­quired to pro­vide reams of pa­per­work just for a sim­ple visa re­newal. This doesn’t ap­ply to visas but just about ev­ery ad­min­is­tra­tion process you can think of - pho­to­copies of ten­ancy con­tracts, Ejari, pass­ports, DEWA bill etc, etc. Even a pho­to­copy of your Emi­rates ID - surely one of the pri­mary points of the Emi­rates ID was to elim­i­nate the need for all this sup­port­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion? I’m sure con­sid­er­able time and money was spent de­vel­op­ing the EID sys­tem - surely it’s about time to use it to it’s full po­ten­tial. JBH Dubai
