Urgent UAE: Identity and Nationality announces the launch of the “Family Data” service

Abdallah Shahin - | UAE

The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security has introduced the "Family Data" service as a substitute for the existing Emirati family book service. This new service aims to verify the information of Emirati individuals and families and streamline access to various government services online. Users can access the service through their personal accounts on the authority's website and application. The intelligent data, referred to as "Family Data", will commence on May 13, 2024. The objective of this initiative is to enhance the well-being of Emirati families by enabling them to easily access various services through electronic connectivity. Additionally, it aims to facilitate the electronic exchange of data between these families and the bodies that require this information in order to provide their services.

The Director General of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security, Major General Suhail Saeed Al Khaili, stated that the introduction of the Family Data service is a result of the Cabinet's decision to embrace digital transformation and implement the concept of digital government in data and information usage. This initiative aligns with the UAE government's directives to deliver seamless services. The launch of this service is part of the Authority's plan to provide proactive services to customers, meeting their aspirations before they even request them. It aims to facilitate their access to all services through electronic connectivity and information exchange between relevant authorities.

He emphasized that this decision will yield numerous advantages for citizens, the most notable of which is facilitating their access to efficient and convenient services in a shorter timeframe and with reduced effort. This will contribute to enhancing their happiness and improving their overall quality of life by streamlining the requirements and procedures for obtaining government services, ultimately aiming to bolster the country's global standing and leadership. In the realm of digital transformation and smart governance, individuals and Emirati families will have access to their data through a new service called "Family Data" on the Authority's website and smart application. This service will facilitate the electronic exchange of data, replacing the traditional family book document. Obtaining the services requires the data to be available.

The Director General of the Authority stated that the nationwide implementation of this service will commence on May 13, 2024, on the condition that the Authority maintains the connection and updates of data on Emirati individuals and families with the relevant authorities, following the established work mechanism and data exchange procedures. The existing family book will be terminated and replaced with a new system called "data." The information currently recorded in the family book, such as nationality, family members, and place of birth, will be transferred and displayed in the new data system. It is important to note that the passport will still be used for international travel, in compliance with the country's laws, while the family book will be replaced by the data system. The digital family supplants the existing family book in terms of the services and benefits acquired through it.

He stated that the Authority will follow the same conditions and controls for extracting, updating, or amending statistical statements for Emirati individuals and families (referred to as "family data"). The process of issuing the current family book will be adhered to, and the same procedures will be followed for proving, amending, or issuing family data through the website and the application. Intelligent Governance.
