UAE begins E-gate registration for ports
Abu Dhabi, June 24, 2013
UAE’s Ministry of Interior has started the registration process for the E-gate project, which aims to simplify travel procedures through the country’s ports.
The registration, launched at the Abu Dhabi Mall Center, is applicable for citizens of the UAE and the GCC, in addition to residents who have an entry visa (from the port). Registration will continue until next Thursday.
Major Mohammad Ahmad Al Zaabi, director of the E-port Project, stated that registration begins at 10 am and concludes at 10 pm He further noted that it is free-of-charge.
He added that those wishing to register should bring their passports. The Ministry of Interior has allocated special counters for women; there are other counters for individuals with special needs at the Abu Dhabi Mall Center. Emirati citizens have a separate counter, and there are three counters for residents and visitors.
E-gate streamlines travelers’ entry and exit, taking less than 20 seconds by leveraging the eye and face scan, and passport reader, Major Al Zaabi added. – TradeArabia News Service
