How to Apply for UAE Pass?

What is UAE Pass?

UAE PASS is the National Digital Identity and Digital Signature solution for the UAE.

Through this application, you can access various government services without stepping out. This is the easiest way to get all your government work done. UAE Pass will provide you access to different services across various sectors through a single digital identity.

The UAE PASS is a collaboration between Smart Dubai, Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), and Abu Dhabi Digital Authority and was launched in 2018.

Your main UAE PASS identifier is your Emirates ID number. When you log in to a service you can use your valid email, mobile number, or Emirates ID number.

Citizens and residents with a valid Emirates ID card are currently the only users eligible for UAE PASS and can make regular payments, like your home and mobile phone bills.

UAE Pass also provides access to services like DubaiNow and even legal processes like applying for your residence visa or buying a property. This is possible using the electronic signature. The UAE PASS signature is legally binding and is equally valid to a written signature. The UAE Pass signature is an accepted digital signature that can be used to sign important documents online without the need to visit service centers.

There is no charge to register and use the UAE PASS service.
