New Emirates ID card reading in chrome or desktop application

New Emirates ID reader

This blog is about New Emirates ID card reader in Google Chrome browser using console application and chrome extension.

I have written a blog for how to read Emirates ID public data in Google Chrome browser via console app and chrome extension.

In October 2021 I received few complaints that some customers are having new version of Emirates ID that is not working.

So I contacted ICA and requested the updated SDK for these new cards, They were quite responsive and replied very next day. and provided me updated SDK which supports both (old and new) version of Emirates ID cards at same time.

But I noticed this new version of SDK can read less number of data fields.

Anyhow for my projects I have updated the Console application with new SDK, while remaining Chrome extension part is same as expained in my previous blog.

Steps to read new Emirates ID cards data

1.1- Download required dlls and console app v2 and extract it.

1.2 You will need .net framework 4.5 32 bit installed to run above app

2.1- Go inside extracted folder and Double click install_host.bat file to create registry key.

3.1- Download chrome extension named ADCS EID Reader from Google chrome webstore.

Now you will be able to read a card at readme.html as well as here on this page, Insert card in card reader and click below Read Card button
  response from console app will come here

3.2- For coding help open readme.html and see what code is there, you can update control ids and classes but I have the following

3.3- In you page the following html objects should be there

  1. .simulateEidResponse (hide it using css in development mode)
  2. #txtNationalNumber
  3. .btn-readCard
  4. optional, if you are not keeping these than you have to modify .simulateEidResponse click event accordingly.
    • .eid-wrapper
    • .spinner-border

4- Insert card, read it and chill
