Based on the principles of the Fifty Declaration and the UAE Centennial 2071, which stipulate that the human being comes first, and the directives of the wise leadership, and within the framework of its relentless pursuit to achieve leadership and develop proactive services provided to customers. In early September 2022, the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Ports Security ( ICP ) launched the third generation of advanced services, which includes issuing a new generation of UAE passports and an updated system for entry and residence visas for foreigners in the country.

In this system, the ICP embodied the slogan of the human being or the customer first and granted customers, including citizens, foreigners, residents, and visitors, unprecedented advantages locally and regionally in the field of printing the UAE passport, as well as new advantages, conditions, and categories for entry and residence visas that are easier and easier.

These advantages reflect the insightful future vision of the wise leadership of the UAE and the esteemed Council of Ministers headed by His Highness the President of the UAE, His Highness the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and their brothers, the rulers of the Emirates, and their keenness to make the UAE an oasis for living, working, innovation and investment, and enhancing its competitiveness and leadership.

The developed services system, launched by the ICP this month, aims to enhance the leadership and competitiveness of the UAE among the countries of the region and the world in the field of living and residence, supporting economic growth, attracting investments and talents, and providing proactive services in the spirit and thought of the fifty, as well as emphasizing the humanitarian values and principles on which the UAE was founded.

The new UAEpassport is a new technological leap that enhances the cultural status of the UAE and is in line with the directions of the wise leadership to move towards intelligent government and provide security and safety for citizens in their solutions and travel.

The new visa system is characterized by the development of applied residencies and simplification of their procedures, and the addition of new types to suit all categories of investors, entrepreneurs, brilliant talents, scientists, specialists, visitors, first students, graduates, humanitarian pioneers, the first line of defense and skilled labor in all fields.

The updated visa system includes a new generation of residencies with great benefits and facilities aimed at separating the residence from the employer and considering the contractual relationship, reuniting families, providing flexible grace periods of up to 6 months after the expiry or cancellation of residency, and adding new options for those wishing to visit the country and those looking for job and investment opportunities, and the most prominent of the new residency,    Green residency granted for a period of 5 years, renewable without a guarantor or employer.

The third generation of developed services is a step towards the future, followed by actions and measures that achieve the hopes and ambitions of customers, on the promise of ICP to continue the development pathway and achieve leadership in providing services.
