Holders of Palestinian travel documents have been granted the right to move from Jordan to Lebanon or Syria, human rights sources reported.
To that end, an online demand should be submitted on the Jordanian Foreign Affairs Ministry’s website. Two forms should be filled in, one in 14 days and the other in five days. The procedure costs nearly 102 Jordanian dinars.
Sometime earlier, the Higher Council for Policies in Jordan gave instructions for closing doors to Palestinians with Syrian travel documents on claims of fighting resettlement of Palestinian refugees.
More than 2 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA live in Jordan.
There are ten recognized Palestine refugee camps throughout the country, which accommodate nearly 370,000 Palestine refugees. Jordan hosts the largest number of Palestine refugees of all of the UNRWA fields.
