The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security (ICP) has announced the launch of new generation passports from September 1, 2022.

The new passports are part of a new generation of Emirati passports and national identity card project that was launched in June 2021.

ICP’s chairman Ali Muhammad Al Shamsi said:

The new generation of the UAE Passport is part of achieving the UAE government’s vision to reinforce the UAE identity using the latest technologies, and to provide distinctive services for the identification of personal identity in accordance with the best international standards.

A video released by the ICP reveals that the new Emirati passports have updated features. They will have an introductory page made of polycarbonate with professional printing support, and use decorative carving with multiple and highly sophisticated spectra to prevent counterfeiting or falsification.

The passport will be issued at designated ports, using laser technology and three-dimensional tangible elements.

The previous generation passports will be valid until they expire, after which owners will be able to apply for renewal to get new generation passports.
