Brigadier Mohammed Al Awadi Al Menhali, Acting Director-General of Police Operations at the Abu Dhabi Police Headquarters, has said that in case of loss of official documents, the Naturalisation and Residency departments will issue fresh documents without the need for the affected person to report the matter to the police.

"People can directly approach the Naturalisation and Residency Department now to get a fresh document issued in place of the lost one," Brig. Al Menhali said.

He added that while the UAE nationals would be issued new passports at the the Naturalisation and Residency Department, the expatriates can approach their respective embassies for the issuing of new passports.

The move follows the instructions of the Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who had underlined that this step aimed at saving the time of people, who had to approach the police to notify them about the lost documents.
