The UAE Cabinet has launched the Electronic Family Book, to be used as an approved document in all transactions across the UAE, in addition to the smart application of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship.
The government marks its trend towards the implementation of smart services in the region. The Electronic Family Book significantly reduces the customer service queues up to 80 percent by 2021 serving as a databook containing all the information of citizens and residents in the country.
A series of workshops with relevant entities is proposed to be held prior to launching the Electronic Family Book, effective from July 1, 2019.
The Electronic Family Book is programmed to store the data in the smart chip of the ID card, enhancing the convenience of transactions, along with security and prohibition of fraudulent behaviors in the region.
