AMMONNEWS - Prime Minister Omar Al-Razzaz, upon the recommendation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Monday approved the criteria for financial assistance to those wishing to return home after losing their jobs abroad and cannot afford the trip.

The criteria, which were agreed with the Crisis Cell at the National Center for Security and Crisis Management, includes those who work in top positions and lost their jobs in the last four months and whose salaries were below one-thousand dinars, while taking into consideration the embassy's recommendations in exceptional cases, particularly those with extended families.

Those eligible are also the ones whose contracts were not voluntarily terminated, extended families, particularly those that had been abroad for long, the sick or humanitarian cases that are compelled to return and do not have enough money for the journey.

They also include those who are still stranded abroad and have not been able to return in the last period based on the recommendations of embassies, groups, such as teachers, trainers and others who work in non-supervisory or non-senior positions as well as persons released from prison or those who were deported.
