Last Updated on July 9, 2024 by Vadim

Have you misplaced your Ejari certificate or need an extra copy of it? The good news is that you can download the document for free online through the Dubai Land Department (DLD) website and UAE Pass app.

The Importance of Ejari Certificate

The Ejari certificate is a mandatory document for all tenants in Dubai. It is a registered tenancy contract that must be registered through the Ejari system. This document is crucial for various legal processes, such as applying for your family’s residence visa or activating a utility connection with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa).

How to Download Your Ejari Certificate

Before you try to access the certificate, you need to make sure you have the following essential details:

  • Ejari contract number
  • Dewa premise number or Dubai Municipality number (which is the registration number for the property)

Once you have these details, you can download the Ejari certificate from the DLD website. Here are the steps:

  1. Visit the official DLD website –, and click on ‘Download Ejari Certificate’ on the site’s homepage.
  2. Next, enter your Ejari contract number, which is at the top left of the Ejari document.
  3. Enter your DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) Premise number or Dubai Municipality number (the registration number for the property) – you can find both these details under the ‘Leased Unit’ section of the Ejari document.
  4. Tick the ‘I’m not a robot’ captcha and click the ‘Download’ button.
  5. You will now have a valid digital copy of your Ejari Certificate.

How to Download Your Dubai Tenancy Contract on the UAE Pass App

If you do not know your Ejari number or Dewa premise number, you can access your ‘Unified Ejari Tenancy Contract’ on the UAE Pass app. However, for this method, you are required to create an account and register your Emirates ID details to use the app.

The UAE Pass app is the national digital identity for citizens, residents, and visitors in the UAE. It enables users to access many online services and sign and authenticate documents digitally. The app also has a ‘digital vault’, which stores all your digital documents in one place and even makes it easy to share them with government departments digitally.

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the app, and click on the ‘Documents’ section on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Next, click on the ‘+’ icon, and scroll down till you see the ‘Dubai Land Department’ section.
  3. Select ‘Tenancy Contract’.
  4. Next, the UAE Pass system will check if a tenancy contract issued by DLD is registered with your Emirates ID. This process takes a few minutes, and you will be notified once the contract is available on the app.
  5. Once you receive the notification from the UAE Pass app that the document has been saved, you can go back to the documents page and view the tenancy contract.
