During a legislative session held on early Tuesday, January 8, 2019, the House of Representatives agreed to exempt children born to Jordanian women and non-Jordanian fathers, in addition to Gazans from needing work permits.
The House of Representatives gave the Minister of Labor the authorization to establish offices, which function is to regulate the recruitment of non-Jordanian workers in some sectors, in a way that does not contradict the objectives of the Ministry and its policy in providing job opportunities for Jordanians.
During the session, the House of Representatives also agreed to impose bases for licensing these offices each year and cases of license revocation. In addition, it allowed unions, employers' associations, trade unions, universities, municipalities, industrial and commercial chambers, and any other public bodies to employ Jordanians provided that they don't make the job seekers pay for this service.
