The ICP which manages and approves these documents recently shared a simple yet powerful tip that can help residents easily tackle this issue.
For any individual living in the UAE, it is important to stay informed and updated about the status and validity of their official documents. Failure in renewing or updating these documents could lead to major inconvenience including heavy fines. Since the ICP is responsible for these affairs, they have come up with instructions on how to activate notifications in the UAEICP mobile application. Activating these notifications are crucial, as this could help individuals from avoiding potential fines.
In iPhone, the process is straightforward. Navigate to settings, select the ‘Notifications’ option, and choose the UAEICP mobile app (you need to install the app first). From here, you can activate notifications that keep you alert on various information including document expiry dates.
The process is quite similar in Android as well. Once you have installed and activated your account on the UAEICP app, go to settings and under notification, scroll down to the UAEICP app. Tap on the notifications toggle button to enable notifications. Once this is done, the app will remind you of deadlines and you can renew your documents before that.
