The Emirates Post delivered 571,000 ID cards to their owners from 1st January to 15th February 2012 out of the total 977,000 cards, the Emirates Identity Authority unveiled today.

In a statement, the Emirates Identity Authority said the daily ID card delivery rate stood at around 30,000 cards in various Emirates Post centres across the country.

These results were the fruit of the service level agreement, which the Emirates Identity Authority signed with the Emirates Post for the purpose of upgrading the ID card delivery services based on the Emirates Identity Authority's concentration on serving customers who are the theme of its strategic values and the top of its priorities.

The Authority called on customers to pick up their ID cards within 30 days from the date they are notified to do so in a bid to get the best service and avoid any damage to their cards as well as the fees incurred by issuing a replacement card.

The Authority lauded the Emirates Post's relentless efforts in finding adequate solutions to the problem of delay in delivery of ID cards.

The Authority asserted that it was making strenuous efforts to decentralise the ID card printing process as soon as possible. The trial phase of this vital project will be rolled out within two months in the most crowded registration centres.
