As advised by the Jordanian Minister of Interior, Samir Mubaideen, the Cabinet chose to eliminate the five-year-residency requirement that was previously obligatory for Jordanian women who are married to non-Jordanians in order for their children to benefit from privileges and facilities provided by Jordan.

Cards issued by the Civil Status and Passports Department (CSPD) to these children are now considered as personal identification cards (ID) in all public and private sectors, the Cabinet announced on Monday, September 10, 2018.

In 2014, Jordanian women’s children were granted facilities in areas of education, health, labor, investment, ownership and in obtaining driving licenses, as well facilities in acquiring residency permits.
