Documents such as DEWA/ FEWA and SEWA bills, rental agreements will be accepted as proof of address in the UAE.

Indian expatriates in the UAE, and across the globe, have been given the option to add their addresses abroad in their Indian passports, said Siddhartha Kumar Baraily, Consul- passport and attestation at the Indian Consulate in Dubai.

However, for those who wish to have a UAE address on their Indian passport must apply for a new passport. Indian passport holders have to apply for a new passport in which the change in address can be made.

“This has been in place for about a year now. There are many people who have already been applying for it. Everyday, I receive at least 11-12 applications from people who want their UAE address on their passport,” said Baraily.

Applicants can be both self-owned and rental addresses and can choose to add only one of the two addresses. “In the passport application, they need to provide both addresses. There is an option that asks for which address they want published in the passport,” he explained.

Documents such as DEWA/ FEWA and SEWA bills, rental agreement, title deed, copies of telephone bills will be accepted as proof of address in the UAE, said Baraily.
