Dubai is to start using drones to deliver driving licences and other official documents, officials have claimed.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) revealed plans to use miniature unmanned aircraft as part of programme to improve government services.
It said the four-rotor drones are expected to be operational within a year.
The system will apparently use fingerprint and retina identification to protect the cargo from unauthorised recipients.
“The UAE will try to deliver its government services through drones,” cabinet affairs minister Mohammed al Gergawi said.
