Cabinet cancels permanent residence condition of Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians

Amman, Upon recommendation of the Minister of Interior, the Cabinet on Monday decided to drop the condition of permanent residence of Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians for a period not less than 5 years before benefiting from privileges offered to their children.

The cabinet also decided to consider the card issued from the Department of Civil Status and Passports to children of these women, as a personal identification card.

Earlier in 2014, the Cabinet decided to grant children of Jordanian women married to foreigners such facilities as education, health, labor, investment, ownership and obtaining driving licenses in addition to facilities in the field of residence permits, but without acquiring the Jordanian nationality.
