Palestinians in Jerusalem who hold Jordanian passports (including temporary ones) can now renew them for JD 150 less than before, the Civil Status and Passports Department (CSPD) announced on Tuesday.

Passports will now cost JD 50 to renew, instead of the original JD 200 fee, regardless of whether Palestinians complete the paperwork in Jerusalem or at one of the CSPD’s offices in Jordan.

The move comes as a gesture of goodwill by His Majesty King Abdullah II, who wanted to support Palestinians in Jerusalem and stand by them, the CSPD said.

Palestinians living in Jerusalem are not considered citizens of Palestine, Israel or Jordan; they are merely considered as residents of Jerusalem.

In the near future, the CSPD will provide a home delivery service in collaboration with the Jordan Post to deliver citizens’ documents to their doorsteps.
