Jordan issues new regulations to support Syrian labourers

Jordan has announced new regulations to support Syrian refugee employment conditions.

The labour ministry released a directive on Tuesday to the industry and commerce chambers announcing that it will receive requests to employ Syrian workers as expatriate labourers who enjoy unrestricted residency permits.

Jordan pledged during a conference in London in February to employ 200,000 Syrian refugees, in exchange for receiving financial and technical support from donor countries.

According to the directive, the applicants should be in possession of the service card issued by the Jordanian ministry of interior, have a valid or expired passport and should have entered Jordan legally.
