I have to go there tomorrow to get my identity card, but all I can find out on the website is that it is behind al rashidiya council building. Does anyone know where that is and how I get there?

it is opposite MCC but you need to weave through rashidiya to get there. Someone put a map up here on EW, perhaps you can search for it

CC that's as useless as a chocolate tea pot, so i will try to help.

Do you know where Bin Sougat mall is? Taking the Airport road off Emirates road get to the left hand lane to the first big junction turning left, this is opposite the Royal Airwing terminal. Trundle down the road over some speed bumps (bin Sougat Mall is on right) but ignore that and get to first roundabout, do a U turn and head as if going back up to Ariprot road, Take junction that has a KFC on right, follow along and then try to find a police station, its behind there on a sandy patch in the middle of nowhere facing Emirates road aprox opposite MCC mall.

Thats the right area, suggest you just keep stoping and asking locals for directions. HTH

Just to let you all know I found it, eventually!! I drove around Rashidiya for about 10 minutes and then I started to follow 2 4x4s that were driving with purpose. It worked! They drove straight past the place! I am sorry though, I couldn't give you directions if I tried!

Its a maze...and when i went there late last year the queue was so long i am sure you could see it from space.
i have a nice little map that i made and intended to post it on here only i cant get to my web based piccy hosting site at work (curious that i can get on a forum though????)

if you want a copy of the picture, drop me an email on sandysw32 at gmail dot com

this question was asked before and there was a lady who replied with excellent directions that i found very useful - do a search and i am sure you will find it.

The ID centre is actually very easy to find. If you are travelling along airport road, airport on your left. You will pass Bin Sougat Centre on your right/royal airwing on your left. At the traffic light turn right, go all the way to the bottom of the street to the round-a-bout and double back. Travel almost all the way back to airport road and take the slip to the right just before getting to airport rd -I think, 49c street (you are now travelling behind the metro station). Go past the metro building on your left, travel for about 1km till reaching the 2nd round-a-bout, turn right. Then take the 2nd left (there is a small set of shops on this corner, set a little way back from the rd). At the T , turn right then first left. Travel straight, houses on your right, school on the left. ID centre is at the top of this road to the left.

Happy travels
