SHARJAH: H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, today was briefed about the e-registration and e-gate services offered at airports in the UAE by the Ministry of Interior to ensure speedy travel procedures in less than 10 seconds.
This came during a meeting with H.H. Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, at Al Qasimia University, where the duo discussed issues of mutual concern and ways of improving services and the life of citizens and residents of the UAE.
