LEGALIZATION OF YOUR STAY – RESIDENCE PERMIT
Shortly after arriving in Jordanand moving into the dormitory or private flat foreign students have to apply for a temporary residence permit.
students from other countries have 30 days to apply for a residence confirmation and a temporary residence permit.
OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT
It is advisable to open a personal bank account with a local bank (especially for those students who will stay in a dormitory). Most banks offer special student accounts which are often free of charge.
Most banks allow their customers to access and operate their accounts online. Opening a bank account enables you to keep your money in a safe place, use necessary amounts when needed as well as pay without cash (debit cards), make wire transfers, etc. After opening an account the bank issues a debit card which you can use when you want to withdraw money from an ATM or make payments up to a set limit. Detailed bank offers may differ – we recommend contacting directly a financial consultant at the bank branch.
