How to renew your e-gate card in Dubai?

Renewing the e-gate card is a pretty quick and easy procedure. All you have to do is bring with you the following:

the old e-gate card to be renewed
original passport with visa page - both must be valid
Fees of 200 AED plus 25 AED for other charges
1 passport size photo - just in case you would like to change the photo in the old card

Once you have all these documents ready with you, you may proceed to the nearest available e-gate office and present all your documents. You can also do it for someone else. The process will take ten to fifteen minutes then you will be handed with the new card with only the issue date without the expiry. Note that this card is valid for two years from the date of issue

You may come to the following e-gate offices

Dubai Airport - Departure
Dnata Office - SZR
DNRD offices (Main office in Jaflia/Jebel Ali Br. and Abu Hail)
Government Services Office-DIFC (if under DIFC)

Why it is good to have an e-gate card especially if you are a frequent traveller in and out Dubai?

This is because it will save you valuable time. No need to stand in line in the immigration and wait for your passport to be stamped. When you go to e-gate at the airport, just need to swipe the card and scan your finger and your done. When you register for e-gate they take all information from your travel document and your biometrics so you have to be present if first time applying for this card.
