The extension will span for one year for Syrian workers in factories benefiting from the rules of origin agreement with the European Union. While Syrian workers in professions for non-Jordanians will have a six-month extension.

This decision will be evaluated after the periods mentioned above have ended.

The Cabinet also endorsed the recommendations of a committee to reconcile outstanding claims between taxpayers and/or violators and the Customs Department. This agreement will settle 16 cases, contingent upon the commitment of the involved parties to pay the full due amounts, including any fees, taxes, or expenses, within two months from the decision's issuance.

Furthermore, the Cabinet approved the rationale behind the draft bylaw for establishing Al-Qatrana Sharia Court of First Instance for the year 2024. This move, driven by urban expansion and population growth, is aimed at facilitating convenient and easy access to judicial services for citizens, while clearly defining the jurisdiction of the courts' operations.

Lastly, the Cabinet sanctioned the reasons for amending the bylaw of blood transfusion services and its derivatives for the year 2024. This amendment is intended to regulate various aspects related to the functioning of blood banks, ensuring effective management and service delivery.
