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.

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
