The all-out campaign is launched as per the directives of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Lt. General Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said assistant Undersecretary for Naturalisation, Residency and Ports Affairs, Major General Nasser bin Al Awadi Al Menhali.
The Security Media Department at the ministry will implement the campaign in cooperation with the print and electronic media operating in the country.
