The leadership clarified in the announcement that the applications will be considered at a later time, in the event that the JAF needs to recruit holders of bachelor's degrees in certain disciplines.

The leadership also indicated that some of its needs include those in engineering disciplines, general mechanics, and computers and electronics.
The statement added that submissions will open on November 15, for two weeks.

Applicants should have Jordanian nationality, be born January 1, 1996 or later, be at least 165cm tall, and be physically fit.

The conditions also stipulate that an applicant should not be a previous member of the JAF or any other security agency, either in a military or civil capacity. Those with a previous conviction, either a felony or misdemeanor involving theft, embezzlement, forgery and bribery, bad credit or any crime that violates public morals cannot apply.

The announcement also noted that an applicant’s average in high school should not be no less than 80 percent and in the scientific branch only.

Required documents include an original university attestation, original university transcript, or the equivalency of an original non-Jordanian university degree from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in addition to an original transcript from a non-Jordanian high, as well as a number of family-related documents.

The announcement made it clear that the General Command would not consider any request that violates their announced conditions, or lacks the required documents.
