The digital identity program for Jordanian citizens will roll out in the coming few days. Said Jordan’s Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, Ahmed Al-Hanandeh.
The digital identity aims to facilitate Jordanian citizens’ day-to-day requests such as issuing or renewing passports, national ID, official documents without the need to leave home.
Every Jordanian citizen enrolled in the digital identity program will also need to create an electronic signature to use in all digital touchpoints with public sectors except land and other critical sectors as it requires physical attendance.
Jordan’s government will gradually roll out the digital identity program across the country according to citizens’ needs; for example, citizens who have monthly requests from one of the public sectors will be first to enroll in the digital identity program.
