This comes in line with the “Closer to You” initiative dedicated to service customers in these both categories.
He said: “the department is seeking to develop services provided for its customers in order to elevate the level of satisfaction, and guarantee the receipt of the services we provide.” He noted that the “Closer to You” service is carried out within the framework of the keenness of the Residency and Foreigners' sector in the Ministry of Interior, and aims to achieve the goal of enhancing the public’s trust in the efficiency of the services provided to them, and realize the vision of the UAE Vision 2021.
He then assured that senior citizens and individuals with special needs are main categories among the customers of the Department. He noted that the “Closer to You” initiative guarantees equal opportunities by providing an even access for senior citizens and individuals with special needs to all the department’s sources and services that benefit other customers in a way that increases the level of satisfaction.

Al Humairi explained the steps of dealing with applicants through ‘Closer to You’ service via the allocated numbers for the service. “One of the employees heads to the home, work or hospital of the service applicant. However, some of the applicants who are covered by the service insist on coming to the department, where the service is provided to them in their own vehicles at their specialized parking lots by the employee who completes all the procedures of the service, and delivers it to the customers while they are in their vehicles” he added.
Al Humairi also revealed a future plan for developing “Closer to You” service by working in the outer centers. The service delivery authority is granted to the employees of these centers, in addition to the main building, to ensure the maximum benefit of the service for the applicants living in outer areas of Al Ain city center.
