Indian living in the United Arab Emirates can now renew their International Driving Permit (IDP) at the Indian embassy.

The Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi has reportedly announced that IDPs will be re-issued to Indian nationals from February 15, 2021. Expats will be able to avail of this consular service between 8.30 am and 12.30 pm on all working days (Sunday to Thursday). Applicants will be charged Dh 40 as consular service fee and Dh 8 as Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF) charge.

Those applying for renewal of IDP are required to present a valid passport, expired IDP / IDP number and their Indian driving license. Besides these documents, applicants will have to submit the Miscellaneous Consular Service Form (EAP-II).

All the relevant documents along with the receipt issued by the embassy will have to be uploaded to the mParivahan portal, where the applicant will also be prompted to pay the IDP fees. Once all the documents are verified, the licensing authority will courier the IDP directly to the residential address of the applicant.

Indians living in Dubai and the northern emirates will have to go through the same process. The fees will also be the same. However, instead of visiting the consulate, they will have to visit the IVS office for document submission.
