Civil status documents
The Ambassador is abilitated as civil status officer. The consulate holds the civil status books. It registers civil status certificates on your behalf or on the behalf of your family. It can issue copies, extracts, records and certificates. If the certificate has been registered by a Jordanian authority, the consulate can transcribe it for you and issue copies and extracts of this transcription.
