The UAE's Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship on Thursday made an announcement on urgent fee waiver for select residents.

"Elderly people above the age of 70 who are unable to visit the customer services centers are exempted from the urgent service fees at the customer services centers. They have to prove their age with their family book, passport or any other authentic document," the authority said on Twitter.

Recently, the FAIC had also issued a notification for residents, urging them to be careful of fraudsters.

The department warned Emirates ID holders never to share their personal or banking details by phone, adding that the authority never collects such data by phone or email.
