30 minutes experience at Civil Status Department

May God be with you is a common wish you would say to a friend or relative who have some work to finish with any governmental department in Jordan but I can assure it's just a history when it comes to Civil Status and Passport Department.

Today I decided to go to CSPD to renew my ID as it was very shabby and the photo was taken like 10 years ago; I wouldn't even recognize myself looking to it and I was delaying this task day after day, month after month; actually year after year :-) because visiting a governmental department would be the last thing I fancy to do but today I was shocked and astonished!!! it took only 30 minutes, THIRTY MINUTES to issue my new ID and by 30 minutes I mean from the minute I entered the building to the minute I left it, including filling the application form, standing in the queue, paying 3 JODs and getting my ID.

It's amazing to see governmental departments in Jordan getting better and maybe they have been doing good for a while, my last experience with them was at least five years ago.

What made me happy and actually excited about visiting them again to renew my passport isn't just the blink of processing my application but they do greet and smile too.

isn't it nice to see such thing?

  1. Maybe you were dreaming and that genie popped up from the bottle and granted you a wish :)

    My last experience with the Syrian dept. was bad…so bad actually.

  2. It's always great hearing about these things.

    Last time a went to the traffic department in Jordan (Al-Salt) there was a big sign saying "if your operation takes more than 45 minutes, please see the manager".

    That was two years back.

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
