AMMAN – Nabil Al-Ghishan, a former Lower House member, revealed that around 4,000 Jordanian passports are currently being held at the Israeli embassy in Amman, Khaberni reported.اضافة اعلان

According to Ghishan, these passports were initially submitted to the embassy as part of visa applications prior to October 7, 2023. However, these passports have been detained following the embassy's closure, leaving their owners in limbo.

In response to this situation, the Jordanian government has taken steps to address the issue by offering alternative passports to affected Jordanian citizens. To qualify for the alternative passport, individuals must provide evidence that their original passport was submitted to the embassy for visa processing.

Despite this initiative, some individuals are encountering challenges, particularly those who require their original passport for travel purposes, especially if they hold valid visas for the US or Schengen countries. Additionally, there is a growing frustration among affected individuals who question the necessity of obtaining a new passport and incurring additional fees when their existing passport remains valid.
