to a reliable source; the UAE cabinet on Monday the 1st of April adopted
a decision to initiate the Electronic Family Book as a document for use in all
transactions across the UAE.
One major advantage that the family book will bring is the reduction of long queues
for major transactions in the country. By the year 2021, queues would have
reduced by approximately 80%. The launch shall apply to both UAE Nationals and
expats alike as it will be directly linked to the Emirate ID and shall begin on
the 1st of July with various workshops held prior to the launch.
is indeed great news and we welcome it.
Electronic Family Book will store the data within chip of the Emirate ID Card
in order to augment the convenience of transactions, security and reduce
chances of fraud.
