Emirates ID Card to replace Labour Card by next year

UAE Identity Card

It seems that the real life usage of Emirates ID Card is just around the corner now, almost.

As stated by Saqr Gobash, the Minister of Labour, expatriates will no longer need to have a Labour Card by late 2012 when a decision to replace it with the national identity card is enforced.

“The Ministry of Labour will scrap all Labour Cards once it receives a request from Eida….there will be no need for all expatriates to carry too many cards after the ID registration is completed in the second half of 2012.”
