Annual Residence

The conditions to grant an annual residency permit for Arab and foreign inhabitants:

The validity period of the granted residency permit is given accordingly to the passport’s validity period, if the latter has exceeded 6months, without exceeding a year.

The residency permits granted to minors whether annual or permanent are exempted from fees.

The applicant for a residency permit whose age is higher than 64 is exempted from handing out a work attestation.

When it comes to Syrian inhabitants that are aged 15 years or less, the passport can be replaced by an extract of civil status which is issued 3months ago at the most. As for those that have exceeded 15 years, they can use their identity card instead.
