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?
